The Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me was supposed to drop on November 11.
It didn't, and instead November has been marked by a feud between the project's former director John Singleton and its producers.
Singleton said the film was a mess and disrespectful to Pac's legacy. Producer LT Hutton dismissed the criticism, and said he was going to keep plugging away at the film until it tells Pac's story properly.
Now Dominic L. Santana, who plays Suge Knight in the biopic, has revealed the release date to be June 16th, 2017, would which be Tupac's 46th birthday.
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
The film stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. as Tupac, and will be directed by Benny Boom.
