Official Tupac documentary directed by Steve McQueen announced
An authorized doc, directed by the director of “12 Years A Slave.”
In many ways, Tupac Shakur has been one of the biggest rap stars of 2017. He was posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and the All Eyez On Me biopic is scheduled to hit theaters on June 16. And now, Pitchfork reports, an authorized documentary about Pac is in the works.
Amaru Entertainment, the company that Pac’s mother Afeni Shakur founded to release his projects after his death, will sanction the film. Steve McQueen, of the award-winning 12 Years a Slave, will direct.
“I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist,” McQueen said in a statement. “I attended NYU film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.”
Producers for the film include Jayson Jackson (What Happened, Miss Simone?), White Horse Pictures Nigel Sinclair (The Beatles: Eight Days A Week), Nicholas Ferrall, and Shakur Estate trustee Tom Whalley.
