We’ve also been talking to folks at the studio producing this film and we’re glad to hear the movie is back on again.
It is being reported that the long-delayed 2Pac film may finally be headed for production. Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Morgan Creek Productions have signed on to co-finance and co-produce Tupac, reinvigorating talks about the biopic.
A script by Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft is expected in two weeks. Production is expected to begin in February. The film reportedly has a $45 million budget.
The studio has reportedly already acquired the rights to Tupac Shakur’s musical catalog. The fallen rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur, is to serve as a producer on the film, as well. -Martin James
