First Footage of Tupac Biopic Hits Web

Tupac biopic

It’s been nearly 20 years since Tupac’s life was cut short in a hail of bullets, and he’s still one of the most popular figures in pop culture.

While Pac’s life seems perfect for the Hollywood treatment, it wasn’t clear that we’d ever see his meteoric rise and sudden demise play out on the big screen–until now.

After years of delays, and even a lawsuit, we now have a sneak peek at director Benny Boom’s upcoming Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me.

In the brief clip, Demetrius Shipp Jr. (a serious doppelganger for Tupac), recreates one of Pac’s most infamous interviews during his 1994 trial for sexual assault.

Shipp seems to deliver the goods in this sample, but it remains to be seen if he can capture Tupac’s passion, fire, and unique personality during the film.
