Off the success of the Notorious BIG movie which made $21 mil. at the box office, a Tupas movie appears to be in the works. A recent press release states that Amaru Entertainment has been in talks with major studios about bringing the life and death of Tupac to the screen.
we have been in discussions and negotiations with several major studios and production companies, including Morgan Creek Productions. However, at no time did we have an agreement with MorganCreek. Sadly, MorganCreek decided to take advantage of this situation and attempt to frustrate our project by interfering with our business relationships. We will not be frightened by MorganCreek’s tactics and we are absolutely confident that the movie will be produced and released. Tupac’s story is what Hollywood legends are made of – and we want to make sure that the movie tells Tupac’s story like it should be told and lives up to everyone’s expectations. “Tupac touched so many people in his brief life and it makes me feel honored in keeping his message alive. And I want to do so with integrity – in the right way with the right people,” says Afeni Shakur. “That’s what Tupac would have wanted.”
