Following the recent announcements that Jaime Hector and Lauren Cohan have joined the upcoming Tupac biopic, another big role has been announced. Deadline confirms that actress/singer Grace Gibson will play the role of Faith Evans in All Eyes On Me. It’s no secret that is a very controversial role in the project. This infamous photo set of a lot of series issues between Pac and BIG.
Gibson is the daughter of Emmy-winning actress Lynn Whitfield and the late Emmy-winning director Brian Gibson and a recording artist herself. Evans, the first female artist to sign with P. Diddy via his Bad Boy Entertainment, became embroiled in the East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry and was married to Biggie Smalls at the time of his death. He was shot down in a drive-by outside the Petersen Auto Museum in Los Angeles.
Jeremy Haft and Ed Gonzalez penned the script and the film is being helmed by Benny Boom. James G. Robinson, David Robinson (via Morgan Creek Productions) and LT Hutton are producing. Shakur’s mom Afeni Shakur is getting an exec producer credit.
