Today would have been Tupac Shakur‘s 45th birthday, and in celebration, the first teaser trailer from the forthcoming biopic about his life has finally be released. The film which is entitled All Eyez on Me, celebrates the life and legacy of the rapper, actor, and activist.
The film has been highly anticipated and has had a series of false starts before finally settling with a cast and crew that could represent Pac’s story in the manner in which it deserved. 27-year old Demetrius Shipp Jr., who looks strikingly similar to the late rapper will be in the starring role. Joining him is actor Jamal Woolard who is reprising his role as Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G., a role that he first embodied in the 2009 Biggie biopic Notorious.
Watch the trailer for the film below.
There is no official release date for the film yet, but it is rumored to be headed to theaters some time this year.
