The biopic for the late iconic rapper, Tupac Shakur titled ‘All Eyez On Me’ has finally gotten a release date after it was pushed back.
According to one of the actors, the film will debut on June 16, 2017, which would have been Pac’s 46th birthday. It was originally set to be released in November this year but was then pushed back indefinitely.
Actor Dom Santana, who will be playing Suge Knight, took to Instagram to reveal some details surrounding the film’s debut including the release date.
Get ready it’s coming. And please no whining about the date. It’s Pac’s b day. We’re all anxious for it to come out but people gotta remember it’s a major film and there’s a lot of process to releasing major films. Because it was Tupac a lot of buzz was created word of mouth even while we were filming which usually doesn’t happen until a movie is about to come out. This was no regular movie so you’ve been hearing about it since we started. It’s actually right on par with the timing to release a major film after you wrap shooting. So relax and look for the formal announcement soon and actual promotion to start coming out. #AllEyezOnMe #tupac #movie #instagood #followme
