John Singleton knew Tupac when he was alive, but has now been replaced as director in the feature film effort about the rapper’s lives.
“Devil in a Blue Dress” director Carl Franklin has been tapped to replace Singleton. The show will go on without Singleton and shooting is expected in August of September.
Earlier in the week, Singleton expressed discontent with those helping to create the movie.
“The reason I am not making this picture is because the people involved aren’t really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur,” he said on Instagram.
“Tupac” was written by Jeremy Haft and Ed Gonzalez.
