Posted by at 7:43 am on May 11, 2017

12 Years a Slave helmer Steve McQueen will direct a fully authorized, full-length feature documentary on the life of iconic hip hop star Tupac Shakur.

The deal has been signed between Shakur’s estate trustee Tom Whalley, Amaru Entertainment, and White Horse Pictures with Jayson Jackson and Nigel Sinclair to produce the film.

Shakur sold over 75 million records worldwide in a five year career. Shakur, who was murdered in a drive-by shooting at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, September 13, 1996, recently became the first solo hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Beyond the support of Shakur’s estate, the film will also have the support of Interscope Records, which controls most of Shakur’s catalog, and Universal Music Publishing Group.
