It was bound to happen, especially after 2009's Notorious
, a 2Pac
biopic will officially start filming in September. According to DigitalSpy.com, the film will be produced through Morgan Creek and directed by Antoine Fuqua
, who is known for films like Training Day
and Brooklyn's Finest
The big question is who will play 2Pac, and Fuqua says he wants an unknown. "That's the goal, I want to discover someone new," he explained. "I want to discover a lot of new people if I can. Obviously I'm going to have to put some people in it that you know, just because actors have different skills. I want to go to the streets and find him anywhere he might be in the world."
I love the idea of giving an unknown actor a chance, but in the event an unknown wouldn't work, I would like to see Anthony Mackie
or Chiwetel Ejofor.
