As Deadline reports, acclaimed director Steve McQueen has signed on to direct a new Tupac documentary. Authorized by Afeni Shakur’s Amaru Entertainment — which was set up to promote, support and release the legendary rapper’s posthumous projects — and Tupac Shakur Estate trustee Tom Whalley, the currently-untitled film will be produced by White Horse Pictures’s Nigel Sinclair, Jayson Jackson and Whalley; Universal Music and Interscope Records have also thrown their support behind the endeavor. Via press conference, Steve McQueen shared:

“I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist. I attended NYU film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.”

The life of Tupac Shakur will also be hitting the silver screen next month; Benny Boom’s anticipated 2Pac biopic All Eyez on Me is set to arrive in theaters on June 16. Less than 24 hours ago, a new clip from Boom’s film emerged during MTV’s latest awards ceremony.
