The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira is set to play Tupac’s mother Afini Shakur in new bio pic ‘All Eyez on Me’.

According to Deadline.com In Afeni Shakur (who is an exec producer on the film and the keeper of the flame on her son’s estate), Gurira plays a complex woman. A political activist and member of the Black Panthers, Afeni Shakur raised her son to be a voracious reader with a political awareness that informed his development as a street poet. The film covers Tupac’s rise to stardom as a hip hop artist and actor, as well as his imprisonment and prolific, controversial stint at Death Row Records, where he was steeped in the East coast/West coast rap war.

 

This is going to be interesting to see how all of this will turn out, filming is now underway in Atlanta…..
