Tupac Biopic ‘All Eyez On Me’ Casts ‘The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira As Afeni Shakur

A new development on the forthcoming Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, just surfaced Monday evening (Jan. 11). According to Deadline, The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira will helm the role of the legendary rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur. Recently, Gurira made headlines for her critically-acclaimed Broadway play Eclipsed, which also starred Lupita Nyong’o during its off-Broadway stint.

Her role as Michonne on The Walking Dead also made her a fan favorite among viewers. As an executive producer, Afeni Shakur will have a prominent hand in the way her son’s story will unfold in the Benny Boom-directed feature. Playing the likeness of the “California Love” artist will be newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr.

The film is currently underway in Atlanta, Ga., and the plot will follow the pinnacle of Tupac’s career, his stint in jail and his time at Death Row Records. The reel had a rocky start with getting details in order, but in recent months, things have been looking up for the production of the highly-anticipated movie. Shipp also shared his excitement in an earlier Instagram post, writing, “Blessed to be in this position. Thankful I got to start my career off working with the great legend.”
