The release date for the highly anticipated Tupac Shakur biopic, “All Eyez On Me” has been revealed! The Benny Boom directed film, starring Demetrius Shipp Jr, will hit theaters on ‘Pac’s birthday: June 16, 2017. It would have been his 46th birthday. Actor, Dominic L. Santana, who will play Suge Knight, confirmed the released date in an Instagram post:
Get ready it’s coming. And please no whining about the date. It’s Pac’s b day. We’re all anxious for it to come out but people gotta remember it’s a major film and there’s a lot of process to releasing major films. Because it was Tupac a lot of buzz was created word of mouth even while we were filming which usually doesn’t happen until a movie is about to come out. This was no regular movie so you’ve been hearing about it since we started. It’s actually right on par with the timing to release a major film after you wrap shooting. So relax and look for the formal announcement soon and actual promotion to start coming out. #AllEyezOnMe #tupac #movie #instagood #followme
Also playing a role in the biopic is Jamal Woolard. Willard actually starred as The Notorious B.I.G. in “Notorious.” And has carried the role over into Pac’s biopic! Another familiar face is Danai Gurira, who plays the character, Michonee, in The Walking Dead! In “All Eyez On Me,” Gurira acts as ‘Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur. Actress, Lauren Cohan, another actress on TWD, will play his manager, Leila Sternberg.
