Video After The Jump
It's amazing to think that 16 years after Tupac Shakur'sdeath a movie about his life hasn't been brought to the big screen.
It appeared that a Morgan Creek Productions backed biopic would be the first scripted flick about the charismatic rapper who has reached legendary status. But a two-year legal battle between the company and Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, delayed the project.
In February 2011 the two parties reached an agreement which seemed to clear the path for things to get underway.
Director Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day") was picked to helm the movie, but Fuqua backed out because of trouble finding a suitable actor to play Tupac.
Since then there has been very little news about the Morgan Creek project. Now it looks like an indie director out of Houston might be attempting to beat Morgan Creek to the punch.
Noah Mortel has released a trailer for a Tupac movie. At the end of the clip it says the movie is coming out in 2013.
There's virtually no other information online about Noah's project other that the youtube trailer. His IMDB page doesn't even have it listed as being in production.
So we have to ask ourselves is this real or fake?
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
