Danai Gurira is gradually becoming a force in the Hollywood scene, the actress who recently starred along side Kenyan beauty Lupita Nyong’o in the Broadway play dubbed ‘Eclipsed’ would apparently be playing the role off Afeni Shakur the mother of the late rapper TuPac
All Eyez On Me is the title of the upcoming biopic which is produced by the late rapper’s mother and directed by Benny Boom
Deadline Hollywood who first broke news stated that..
”Gurira plays a complex woman. A political activist and member of the Black Panthers, Afeni raised her son to be a voracious reader with a political awareness that informed his development as a street poet. The film covers Tupac’s rise to stardom as a hip-hop artist and actor, as well as his imprisonment and prolific, controversial stint at Death Row Records, where he was steeped in the East Coast/West Coast rap war. It took a long time for this film to make it to the start line”
The production of the movie which kicked off late December 2015 would star
Jamal ‘Gravy’ Woolard as Notorious B.I.G
Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Tupac Shakur
Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett Smith
