MTV Films announced that it will produce a documentary about the life and times of late hip-hop star Tupac Shakur for theatrical release.
MTV: Music Television's film arm will co-produce the movie with Amaru
According to an MTV spokesman, though, the film's production schedule and
eventual release data have yet to be determined.
Also unclear: which studio will distribute the film theatrically.
The film will feature never-before-seen concert footage, family photographs
and unreleased music from the rap star, who was shot to death in 1996.
A title soundtrack from Amaru/Interscope Records will be released in
conjunction with the film, as well as the first official biography of Tupac's
life, which Pocketbooks/MTV Books will distribute, said MTV.
