Tupac Shakur - Movie Bosses Searching For Tupac Shakur Biopic Star Online
Movie producers have launched an online hunt to find an actor to play slain rapper Tupac Shakur on the big screen.
The hip-hop hero was gunned down and killed in Las Vegas in 1996 and the new film will tell Tupac's life story.
Film bosses at Morgan Creek Productions are searching for a star to play the rapper and have teamed up with Skee.TV to find the perfect casting, according to the Los Angeles Times.
They're calling for actors to upload a five-minute audition video, which will include a prepared monologue and a one-minute performance of a chosen Tupac song.
Skee.TV founder DJ Skee says, "This audition process is a great example of utilising today's ever-evolving technology to reach fans and actors around the world to pay homage to a hip-hop legend."
Director Antoine Fuqua is overseeing the biopic.
