New Tupac Biopic 'On Hold,' Says Director John Singleton

Filmmaker John Singleton has put his long-in-the-works Tupac Shakur biopic "on hold," at least on his end. Singleton recently told XXL, "I'm putting my involvement on hold right now because we're trying to figure out some things. I got a script and I got the blessings from his family. We'll see.... We've got to get it right." The movie was originally supposed to go into production in June. The director, whose credits include Boyz N the Hood and the Shakur-starring Poetic Justice, did not expound on the logistics stymying his involvement in the movie, but he did say he found making the movie intimidating.
