The Tupac Biopic Is Moving Forward With An Exciting New Director

Benny Boom is now behind the upcoming film on Tupac's life.

News on the upcoming Tupac biopic has been up and down, but after a few false starts, it seems that the project is finally going forward, and with a notable director on board.

Benny Boom, the music video director behind iconic clips from 50 Cent, Niki Minaj, Nelly and more is now behind the project, which should guarantee a stylishly shot feature -- especially considering he's studied under greats like Director X and Hype Williams.

“I am blessed with the opportunity of a lifetime,” Boom wrote in his announcement on Instagram. “Telling the story of this revolutionary, artist, visionary, genius, soldier! I will make him proud and uphold the legacy.”

No word on when this is actually coming out, but we're excited nonetheless. Think it can top Straight Outta Compton?
