It looks like the long-mooted Tupac film might finally have financing and a script, which is nice if you’re into rap biopics.

Whilst facts on the feature – detailed via Deadline and since confirmed by its makers Morgan Creek – are scarce, with a cast and director still TBA, the $45 million flick will, apparently, start filming in Atlanta in February 2014. Deadline reports Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur and hip hop mogul LT Hutton will co-produce, and that Morgan Creek has secured the rights to use Tupac’s music as a soundtrack.

The film isn’t the only adaptation of Tupac’s life and times on its way; a Broadway musical called ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me’ was confirmed earlier this year.
