It won’t be long before Tupac fans young and old are lining up in droves (whether in the physical or digital sense will depend on a few factors, but I digress) to catch All Eyez On Me. In case you were starting to forget about it, director Benny Boom and Digital Feed Media took to Instagram with a friendly reminder and some official artwork for the biopic.
The film is going to chronicle the incredible rise and – sadly – subsequent, tragic fall of the rap superstar and is scheduled for theater release on June 16, 2017 (which coincidentally would have been Shakur’s 46th birthday).
Here’s a look at what could potentially be the official cover photo:
“It’s all becoming too real. The official artwork for #alleyezonmemovie #june162017 #tupacshakur” – Director Benny Boom (Instagram)
Here’s the official cast list for All Eyez On Me:
Tupac – Demetrius Shipp Jr.
Afeni Shakur – Danai Gurira
Jada Pinkett – Kat Graham
Suge Knight – Dominic L. Santana
Notorious B.I.G. – Jamal Woolard
If it’s done right, the world is long overdue for a decent rapper biopic.
What do you think? Will you be one of the first people outside the theater or will you wait until it’s released on DVD? Are you not going to bother watching it at all because Tupac documentaries are a dime a dozen?
Your opinion matters.
