Rappers Receive The Rocky Treatment

ROCKY star and scribe SYLVESTER STALLONE has put pen to paper for a movie about the real-life deaths of rappers TUPAC SHAKUR and NOTORIOUS BIG.

THUG'Z LIFE, in which Sly will star as well as direct and produce, also covers the corruption surrounding the murders within the Los Angeles Police Department.

The enterprising actor says, "We are just waiting for the ERRORS + OMISSIONS insurance. It's a normal thing, to keep us from being sued.

"I think this can be a great film. It will offer a conspiracy theory, present the evidence and let the audience draw its own conclusions."

Stallone's non-stop production machine is also working on finding backing for his movie on the life of novelist EDGAR ALLAN POE, which is already written. Sly promises, "It will win an OSCAR for somebody!"

The DRIVEN actor was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay ACADEMY AWARD for 1976's Rocky.
