John Singleton to direct Tupac Shakur biopic
http://static2.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.1462282.1379686825!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_420/people-tupacs-writing.jpg

The biopic of slain rapper Tupac Shakur finally has a director. John Singleton has signed on to rewrite, direct and produce the long-gestating film, according to Variety.

Singleton was previously linked to the project years ago, but the deal fell through, adding to one of several hurdles that stalled the project.

Last year, as fans were mourning the anniversary of Shakur’s death at age 25 due to complications after a 1996 drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, news broke that the often-delayed project had gained new steam.

Morgan Creek Productions announced it had teamed with Emmett Furla Oasis Films to co-finance and co-produce the film. At the time producers were working with a script, and expecting a new draft before production was supposed to begin this month.

Singleton will soon begin reworking the script, with hopes of beginning production in June, according to the Variety report.

In 2011, Morgan Creek was developing the project, once known as “Tupac,” with Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) attached to direct, and launched an unsuccessful online casting call to find a lead to fill the shoes of the polarizing, often-embattled rapper.

The film is expected to chronicle Shakur’s prolific rise as a rapper and actor, his infamous legal troubles, his time at Death Row Records and, of course, his killing, which came at the height of the bitter East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry. 

His slaying, like that of peer Christopher Wallace (a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G.), remains unsolved -- although theories about who gunned down the two are among hip-hop’s eeriest mythology.

A legal battle between Morgan Creek and Shakur’s mother, Afeni, over creative control also added to the project's hold-ups -- both parties eventually settled and Afeni will serve as an executive producer on the film.

James G. Robinson and David Robinson, along with Program Pictures’ L.T. Hutton, will also produce.

Singleton coming aboard is a major coup for the project.

The director has masterfully explored the complexities of life in urban America with unflinching social commentary in poignant films such as “Boyz N the Hood” (which earned him two Academy Award nods), “Higher Learning” and “Baby Boy.”

More important, he had a close tie with Shakur, having directed the late rapper in 1993’s “Poetic Justice” alongside Janet Jackson.

“Tupac was the guy who I planned to do a lifetime of films with,” Singleton said. “His passing deeply affected my life as well as countless people in this world. His life story is as important to my generation.”

Shakur’s extensive music catalog will be featured in the film.

Sanaa Lathan Will Make A Trip To Mars In 'Ad Inexplorata' From 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Produce

Hosted by imgur.com

Sanaa Lathan will star opposite Mark Strong in an indie sci-fi movie titled Ad Inexplorata, to be written and directed by Mark Elijah Rosenberg, and produced by Beasts of the Southern Wild producers Josh Penn and Matt Parker.

In the film, Strong will play a NASA pilot who's on a one-way mission to Mars, while Lathan will play the Captain of one of four ships making the same trip.

The project, which was developed at the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, is Strong's feature directorial debut. The filmmaker, who also happens to be founder of Rooftop Films, won the 2014 Sundance Institute/NHK Award - an honor that supports filmmakers considered visionary, on their next films.

It's worth noting that Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild) previously won the award.

Sanaa Lathan most recently co-starred in Malcolm D. Lee's The Best Man Holiday.

She's no stranger to sci-fi, after having starred in 2004's AVP: Alien vs. Predator.

Sundance Film: ‘Dear White People’ (Video)

Posted by Cipriana

Sundance Film: ‘Dear White People’ (Video)
“There isn’t a right way to be black”

 

Have you seen a sneak preview of Justin Simien’s film ‘Dear White People‘? Recently awarded the Sundance 2014 U.S. ‘Dramatic Special Jury Award’ for Breakthrough Talent, Simien turns stereotypical cliches of what it means to be black in America into a visually beautiful and stimulating satire that is sure to awaken all of your cinematic senses and most of all your funny bone.

 

Synopsis:

 

Remember when Black movies didn’t necessarily star a dude in a fat suit and a wig? Or have major plot twists timed to Gospel numbers for no apparent reason? No? Damn…

 


Well believe it or not there was a time when “Black Art-House” was a thing. When movies like Do The Right Thing, Hollywood Shuffle, and Boyz In The Hood were breaking box office records as well as making us laugh, cry, and think in ways movies hadn’t before. 

 

The humble producers of DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, a satire about being a black face in a white place, long to bring those days back…

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular “African American” themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in “post-racial” America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.

“Culture is ubiquitous. From the time a person is born, television, movies, cliques in school and Abercrombie and Fitch ads subtlety suggest to them on a subconscious level who they should and should not be due to their race, gender, looks and sexual orientation (just to name a few). Identity is a powerful concept. It can open up potential and it can severely limit it.”  -Writer/Director/Producer Justin Simien
