We recently reported illustrious Broadway producer Kenny Leon‘s recent ventures in Holler If Ya Hear Me — a musical based on the late great rap star Tupac Shakur. Now it seems like another film regarding the hip-hop icon is underway. Morgan Creep Productions has partnered with Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films to co-finance and co-produce Tupac, a new biopic with an estimated budget of $45 million USD.
