Benny Boom Tapped to Direct Tupac Biopic

Video director Benny Boom is now tapped to direct the highly anticipated Tupac biopic after the first two directors jumped ship.

Earlier this year ‘Boys in the Hood’ director John Singleton was replaced by ‘Devil in the Blue Dress’ director Carl Franklin after Singleton accused the production of disrespecting Tupac’s legacy.

Now it appears the job has fallen to video director Benny Boom. This will be Boom’s second full length feature film since 2009’s ‘Next Day Air’ starring Mike Epps, Mos Def and Donald Faison.

Producers are under the gun to get the project started because next year the rights to Tupac’s story go back to his mother Afeni Shakur.
