Movie Tupac wrote in jail finally in production
While Tupac Shakur was in jail back in 1995 on sexual assault charges, he wrote a screenplay called Live 2 Tell.
As reported by Woooha.com, the screenplay has been circulating around in Hollywood since 2005, shopped directly by Tupac’s mother.
Insomnia Productions finally picked it up and now has the rights to the movie. It is unofficially set to release in 2010.
The movie is not Tupac’s biopic – instead, it’s about a drug kingpin trying to escape his turbulent lifestyle. Here is the official synopsis:
“A charismatic young man at the dawn of adulthood spirals down the wrong path in life and is brought into the underworld by his once trusted mentor, only to become one of the most powerful and feared kingpins in the city. Eventually his conscience gets the better of him and he is driven to self redemption in life… and love”.
Do you think this type of storyline has been overdone?
Tupac’s biopic movie still remains in a legal battle, and it is unclear on if and when it will be produced.
