While Tupac Shakur was locked up for 11 months in 1995, he wrote a screenplay called Live 2 Tell. Over 15 years later, his vision is finally going to come to life. Tupac’s mom, Afeni Shakur, is working on the film with NStar Studios and the production squad that made the 2003 documentary Tupac: Ressurection. Dwight Williams, the man behind Hustle & Flow, is also expected to join the team.
Live 2 Tell is about a young drug dealer who gets caught up in a life of crime, a message that is no less relevant in 2011 than it was when 2Pac penned the story. There’s no word on any big name actors getting involved yet, but the film has a budget of only $11 million and is scheduled to go into production in 2012.
