The wheels are in motion to bring Tupac Shakur's life to the big screen. In an interview with Collider, producer Randall Emmett says filming on an untitled biopic about the late rapper will start in June. He says the film has a "great" script that will not only chronicle his rise to success, but will also feature scenes from his upbringing. 

Emmett also hints that the story will show how the East Coast/West Coast hip-hop rivalry affected Pac's life. 

Fans of Tupac's music will also be pleased with the film. Emmett says they secured the rights to use Pac's hits in the film when the rapper's mother, Afeni Shakur, signed on as an executive producer.
