Default Script Tupac Wrote About Drug Kingpin To Be Made Into Movie

The only script written by Tupac Shakur will be turned into a movie next year.

Titled "Live 2 Tell," the script is about a black teenager from the projects who becomes a drug kingpin before turning his life around, according to a spokesperson for the project. Tupac, who starred in six movies, including 1993's "Poetic Justice," wrote the movie in 1995 with himself in mind for the lead.

Insomnia Media Group, the production company behind an upcoming Shawn Fanning biopic, recently bought the script from the late rapper's mother, Afeni Shakur, who will produce the movie with Preston Holmes ("Hustle & Flow").

IMG, also known for publishing Jose Canseco's tell-all "Juiced" book, is currently casting "Live 2 Tell" with a shooting start date scheduled for March.

Tupac, who died September 13, 1996, after being shot in Las Vegas a week earlier, also starred in "Juice," "Above the Rim," "Bullet," "Gridlock'd" and "Gang Related." Since his death, he's been the subject of two documentaries, "Biggie & Tupac" and last year's "Tupac: Resurrection," which earned an Oscar nomination (see " 'Tupac: Resurrection' - Giving New Life To A Legend").

In December a DVD featuring what's believed to be Tupac's last live performance will hit stores. Titled "Tupac Shakur: Live at the House of Blues," the concert took place in West Hollywood, California, on July 4, 1996, and featured guest appearances by Snoop Dogg and the Outlawz.

On September 13, the nine-year anniversary of Tupac's death, a seven-foot bronze memorial statue of the rapper was unveiled at the newly opened Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia (see "Tupac's Mom Renovates Foundation Center, Says Next LP Will Be The Last").

A second album based on the rapper's poetry, The Rose, Vol. 2, hit stores September 20. Unlike the first, which featured readings of his poems, this compilation features rappers like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, the Outlawz and Digital Underground's Shock-G reworking the poetry into songs.
