John Singleton Quits Tupac Movie

Less than a week after telling XXL that the Tupac biopic is on hold, director John Singleton has stepped away from the project all together. Carl Franklin, who has worked on projects such as Homeland and multiple HBO series, has replaced Singleton. The director made his announcement via an Instagram post claiming that the reason he is no longer involved in the film is “because the people involved aren’t really respectful of the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur.”

Singleton opened up to XXL about his thoughts on tackling a subject as complex and important as Tupac. Reading the interview again, Singleton hints that there was some friction amongst the parties making the film. “It’s very intimidating because, like I said, you just want to get it right,” he explained. “I think the picture is not going to be good unless it’s offensive to some people. So, whenever you make a movie, you always have different elements that people have their say about. But when I’m making my movies, John Singleton movies, it’s really just my voice. So I can’t be listening to all the other suggestions of all these other people and shit. So we’re not going to pull the trigger on that until it’s right. If somebody else wants to do something different then they can do something different. But if it’s going to be right, it’s going to be right. It’s going to be something that potentially adorns ‘Pac’s legacy.”
