Academy Award-winner Steve McQueen will be directing a new documentary about Tupac Shakur’s life. Authorized by the Shakur Estate, McQueen’s documentary is being produced by White Horse Pictures, Jayson Jackson, and Afeni Shakur’s Amaru Entertainment.
In a press release, McQueen shared, “I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist. I attended NYU film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.”
Stay tuned for more details on the release of the documentary. A Tupac biopic called All Eyez On Me will also be released in theaters on June 16th.
