What would a movie about one of the most one of the most influential and self-destructive stars be without a little bit of controversy?
Recent reports surrounding the Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me have been circulating about delays and feuds that prevented a release of the much anticipated biopic. A reported rumor stated that the film’s drop was delayed because Daz Dillinger had a feud over the rights to “Ambitionz Az A Ridah” and the latest news was that the movie was supposed to come out today (November 11).
Of course, All Eyez on Me will not be released today but a producer for the film, L.T. Hutton posted an update on Instagram about why the movie is taking so long and reveals that any previous news about a release date is false.
Hutton’s passionate post ensured fans that he and the new director, Benny Boom, are taking this project very seriously.
