The 2Pac biopic “All Eyez on Me” dropped three bits of information in the past few days. Danai Gurira of the highly popular “The Walking Dead” has officially joined the project and is set to play Afeni Shakur, 2Pac’s mother while Jamie Hector of the amazon series “Bosch“, will play Pac’s Stepfather Mututlu Shakur. It was also revealed that Kat Graham‘s role in the film will be playing one of Pac’s closest friends, Jada Pinkett Smith.

“All Eyez on Me” will be directed by Benny Boom and will star Demetrius Shipp Jr as the legendary west coast rapper. The movie is set to chronicle the rappers rise to stardom as a hip-hop artist and actor, his imprisonment for sexual assault, his time on Death Row Records, and his involvement in the infamous East Coast-West Coast rap feud of the mid 1990s.

The film is currently being shot in Atlanta right now and has no set release date.
