2pac biopic

After years of to-ing and fro-ing, the long-awaited Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me is officially a wrap. The project finished shooting in Las Vegas earlier this month and is currently in the editing process before it hits theaters this fall (fingers crossed). With our first look at the hotly anticipated flick, which was directed by music video extraordinaire Benny Boom, here’s some quick footage of lead actor Demetrius Shipp Jr. reenacting ‘Pac’s infamous courthouse interview from 1994.

In other news, All Eyez On Me‘s reenactment of Tupac’s death in Las Vegas apparently drew a crowd of reporters and on-lookers who mistook the scene for a real life murder. According to TMZ, “local reporters actually rushed to the scene during filming, mistaking the blanks for real gunshots.”

All Eyez On Me is slated for release this November — shortly after the 20th anniversary of Tupac’s death.

And that's a picture wrap. Still can't believe what my life has become and is becoming. Not too long ago it was just struggle, stress and trying to figure it all out. Now I just wrapped up a feature film and I'm the star,  and not just any movie, the life of Tupac, CRAZY. 2015 threw every curveball possible in the midst of preparation to get this role. Thank God for giving me what I needed to keep going and blessing me with the role. Thank you to all the crew and cast, man yall helped make this experience unforgettable  4real. I've made some life long friendships within this film and can't wait til we're all together again at the premiere. R.i.p to Tupac Shakur,  you're a Black Pioneer and a Hero to our people and culture. I hope my performance pays tribute and gives insight to your life and most of all "Spark the brain"
