John Singleton’s Plan For Tupac Biopic Revealed And Fans Aren’t Happy
Tupac Shakur fans are just one day away from the highly anticipated release of the late rapper’s biopic, All Eyez On Me. After many obstacles, the film is finally headed to theaters. Many producers and directors have come and gone but the film has still managed to move forward. By now, many fans know John Singleton was one of the directors who attempted to bring the film to fruition, but to no avail. A couple weeks ago, Singleton also made headlines when he bashed the film’s current director, Benny Boom. Now, the producer of the film has fired back with shocking claims about John Singleton’s initial plan for the film.
According to BET, Singleton’s planned biopic for Tupac is nothing like fans would expect. It has been reported All Eyez On Me producer, LT Hutton, and director Benny Boom The Breakfast Club offered interesting information about Singleton’s film. Apparently, he planned to include prison rape scenes and other wild sex scenes with white women.
“The raped in jail stuff – yeah, he wanted to put that in there,” LT said. “He wanted to start the movie off: Tupac goes in the studio — one guy’s in the studio, he’s getting head. Tupac is with the other girl and these girls are white and Tupac tries to give her anal.”
“Not just that, right. [It] goes to this particular part…” he continues. “The girl denies him, he kicks her out and he tells the white girls to go home and tell your dad that, ‘You got f**ked by a n***a today. End scene… What kind of movie is that, bro?”
Here’s a clip from the interview:
Sutton continued, “There were a multitude of things that he wanted to do that just weren’t flattering to Tupac himself,” Hutton says. “It was almost like, ‘What are you doing? You knew what was going on, and now you want to defame the guy.’ Not on my watch.”
Although John Singleton is known for classic films like Boyz N The Hood, Poetic Justice, Higher Learning, Four Brothers and Baby Boy, many fans think the Tupac biopic is probably better off in the hands of someone else if that’s what he had in mind for a representation of Tupac. However, the comments have garnered an array of mixed opinions. While many fans were very angry about Singleton’s biopic, others believe the All Eyez On Me producers are discrediting Singleton to promote their film.
