Antoine Fuqua - Fuqua On The Hunt For Newcomers To Play Pinkett And Jones

Moviemaker ANTOINE FUQUA is on the hunt for talented unknowns to portray JADA PINKETT and QUINCY JONES' daughter KIDADA as he attempts to put slain rapper TUPAC SHAKUR's life on the big screen.
Insiders close to the top secret production claim the two women will feature prominently in the biopic, which is expected to go before cameras in April (11).
Fuqua is also looking to cast newcomers as Shakur and rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight, who was with the hip-hop superstar when he was shot dead in Las Vegas in 1996.
Shortly after signing on to direct last year (10), Fuqua said he was prepared to "go to the streets" to find his Tupac.
The official synopsis for the much-anticipated film, obtained by MovieHole.net, reads, "The rise and fall of Tupac Shakur is chronicled, from his days attending the Baltimore School of the Arts as a teenager, to his decision to leave his mother’s dead-end life behind and embrace the Thug Life in California, to his wild success as a rapper and his dangerous war against the East Coast scene.
"A true poet who was waylaid by fame’s trappings, his earliest ambition was to change the world and make a difference in people’s lives, and before his tragic murder in Las Vegas in 1996, that’s exactly what 2Pac did."
Pinkett and Jones romanced Shakur at the beginning of his career.
