Feature-Length Tupac Shakur Biopic In The Works From Steve McQueen

10 May 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All Eyez on Me? Deadline is reporting that an authorized, feature-length Tupac Shakur biopic is in the works from the Oscar-winning Steve McQueen.

The director, best known for his acclaimed work across 12 Years a Slave, Hunger, and Shame, is set to work closely with the late rapper’s family in order to craft an authentic portrait of Shakur’s life and legacy. Though it’s yet to nail down an official title, McQueen’s Tupac Shakur biopic will foster a collaboration between Amaru Entertainment, a banner created by his mother Afeni Shakur, and White Horse Pictures. Jayson Jackson (What Happened, Miss Simone?) is on board to produce, while Gloria Cox, Shakur’s aunt, will executive produce.

Striking up a partnership with the surviving family of Tupac Shakur will no doubt lend Steve McQueen and Co. unprecedented access to the archives of an icon who many believe to be one of »

Steve McQueen to direct authorised Tupac Shakur documentary

10 May 2017 2:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

12 Years A Slave and Shame director Steve McQueen will direct a feature documentary on rapper Tupac Shakur. A Deal has been made with Shakur estate trustee Tom Whalley and Amaru Entertainment to bring a new documentary to the screen which will be a fully authorised documentary on the life of late hip-hop artist, writer and poet.

Nigel Sinclair’s White Horse Pictures and Jayson Jackson will produce the film with McQueen helming. Sinclair is responsible for the recent Ron Howard directed Beatles documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week–The Touring Years so the picture is in great hands.

McQueen was quoted on Deadline in saying: “I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist. I attended Nyu film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. »

Steve McQueen to Direct Tupac Shakur Documentary

9 May 2017 2:48 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While he’s currently set to begin shooting his next drama Widows this summer, acclaimed filmmaker Steve McQueen has set his sights on helming a documentary about the life of hip-hop artist Tupac Shakur. Per Deadline, the doc is fully authorized by Shakur’s mother Afeni Shakur. “I am extremely moved and excited to be exploring the life and times of this legendary artist,” said McQueen. “I attended Nyu film school in 1993 and can remember the unfolding hip-hop world and mine overlapping with Tupac’s through a mutual friend in a small way. Few, if any shined brighter than Tupac Shakur. I look forward to working closely with his family to tell the unvarnished story of this talented man.”

Shakur’s recording career was brief, lasting only five years before his murder in 1996, yet the artist’s legacy has continued to thrive, selling 75 million records worldwide. Last month, Shakur became »

It looks like we’re in for a couple of years of Tupac Shakur appreciation. This summer, the late iconic rapper gets the biopic treatment with “All Eyez On Me” which looks….serviceable. But the project that we’d bet will be the authoritative take on the rapper’s life, career, and legacy will be the one coming from Steve McQueen.

The director of “Hunger,” “Shame,” and “12 Years A Slave,” will helm a documentary about Shakur, with Gloria Cox, Tupac Shakur’s aunt and Afeni Shakur’s only sister, among the producers.

Aftermath review

6 April 2017 9:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the moody drama, Aftermath. Ryan takes a look...

The films Arnold Schwarzenegger was making at the peak of his career weren’t exactly known for their dramatic understatement, so if the likes of The Terminator and Predator are still fresh in your mind, then the Austrian Oak’s more recent appearances may seem a little jarring to you. Coming not too long after the downbeat zombie drama Maggie, Aftermath, produced by Darren Aronofsky, sees Schwarzenegger drift further into sadness and introspection - and, we have to say, he acquits himself extremely well.

Aftermath’s loosely based on the true story of a real accident that happened 15 years ago in Germany, when a pair of passenger planes tragically collided in mid-air. Screenwriter Javier Gullon (who wrote Denis Villeneuve’s fabulously strange Enemy) moves the story to Ohio, »

How Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years a Slave’ Turned Horrific Material Into a Universally Beloved Survival Story: Awards Season Flashback

21 February 2017 12:02 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today’s flashback winner is “12 Years a Slave.”]

At this point, hardly anyone would mistake Steve McQueen — the British-born, Amsterdam-based African-American director of “12 Years a Slave” — with the late “Bullitt” star of the same name. The living McQueen started out as an acclaimed experimental shorts filmmaker before landing critical acclaim with his 2007 directorial debut “Hunger,” a spare, haunting portrait of an Ira fighter on a hunger strike during the late 1970’s; he followed that up with another unsettling treatment of male physicality in crisis, the sex addiction drama “Shame.” Both movies starred Michael Fassbender as deeply troubled souls, and “12 Years a Slave” is no exception, though it has much bigger aims than personal strife: The true story of Solomon Northup, a free African American in the 19th century kidnapped and sold into slavery, the movie features Chiwetel Ejiofor at the center of a remarkably poignant and tense story that many have deemed the most compelling treatment of the American slavery experience to date. »

BBC Films: who’s in the running for the top job?

14 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen considers potential runners and riders.

The BBC is likely to announce its new head of film within the next two weeks, according to sources close to the process.

Scroll down for potential candidates and the original job spec

The job, which is considered one of the UK’s most prestigious posts, became vacant in autumn 2016 following the departure of long-time chief Christine Langan. BBC Films veteran Joe Oppenheimer has been serving as acting head of film since then.

The incoming head of film is expected to have an annual war chest of around £12m for production, cementing BBC Films’ position as one the three mainstays of public funding in the UK along with the BFI and Film4.
