Tupac Biopic Will Feature His Original Music, Begin Filming This Summer
When a biopic about your favorite musician is released without their music featured, it's an odd sight to see and hear. Sometimes it works ('Jimi: All Is By My Side' featuring Andre 3000) and other times, it fails miserably (Lifetime's 'Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B').
"Morgan Creek [film studio] bought the rights to the music, and we share 50 percent of the rights with Morgan Creek," Emmett says. "So Morgan Creek acquired all the music rights from the estate when they partnered with Tupac’s mother, who has executive control of the estate."
Emmett also revealed that the biopic, which is currently untitled, will start filming in June. John Singleton, best known for directing the 1991 classic 'Boyz N The Hood,' is still signed on to produce and direct the project. Shakur's mother, Alfeni, will serve as executive producer.
