John Singleton Signs On To Direct <i>Tupac</i> Biopic

Tupac Shakur continues to be one of the most profitable men in show business even 15 years after his death. Tracks recorded before his murder have since been released to create chart-topping albums, a documentary film premiered in 2003, and script he penned in 1995 is in talks to be filmed sometime in the near future.

Now a biopic is in the works about the rapper’s life and John Singleton, who was rumored to direct a film about N.W.A.’s career last month, is now slated to direct the film. Singleton takes over for Antoine Fuqua, who left the project to work on Hunter Killer.

The move makes sense considering Singleton directed Tupac in 1993’s Poetic Justice. No start date for production has been announced.
