Tupac Shakur Biopic ‘All Eyez on Me’ finds its 2pac!

Morgan Creek has spent the past several years developing a Tupac Shakur biopic, without a lot to show for it. But nothing sparks creative progress like a looming deadline, and so with the clock running out on the music rights, the project is finally making some big strides.

Earlier this month All Eyez on Me found a new director in Benny Boom, and now it’s found a new lead as well, in relative newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. In addition, Jamal Woolard has been set to play the Notorious B.I.G. Get more details on the Tupac Shakur biopic casting, and see the first photos of Shipp on set, after the jump.

Shipp himself announced his Tupac Shakur biopic casting on Twitter (via Variety). Shipp’s only IMDb credit to date is an as-yet-unreleased TV movie titled #unlock’d, so it’s hard to guess how he’ll fare as the iconic rapper. Which could ultimately work to his advantage, since it means Shipp won’t come with the baggage a more recognizable actor might. Shipp is also uniquely qualified for the role in one really obvious way: he bears a striking natural resemblance to Shakur.

another "The Walking Dead" actress joined the cast: Lauren Cohan
@TheCollector86 Awesome news! :thumbs: Michonne will portray Tupacs mom 'Afeni', now Lauren joins the cast! :woot:

Her role is described:
"The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan has joined the cast of the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me where she will play Leila Steinberg, a key figure in the young rapper’s life. Steinberg was only 25 years old when she met the 17 year-old rapper Shakur who came to one of her workshops where she mentors kids to use their talent to make their lives better. She knew instantly that he was a different kind of talent and started working with him."

Awesome news! I remember reading something about an upcoming film for years, and also that Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) was supposed to shoot this film, too bad he can´t now, he has more experience than Benny Boom. I do really hope he doesn´t mess this up, ending like a Mtv video clip
