Gillie Da Kid - Gillie Da Kid To Play Tupac In New Suge Knight Biopic

Rapper Gillie Da Kid will play Tupac Shakur in an upcoming biopic abut Death Row Records founder Marion 'suge' Knight.

The On My Dip star will make his movie mark in Ving Rhames and Steven Seagal's upcoming movie Force of Execution, but he is readying himself to portray the slain hip-hop icon.

He tells AllHipHop.com, "Just know I'm going to transform like Will Smith did when he played Ali. We already know I'm 'G'd' (good) enough to play 'Pac, that was never a question after they put a little make up on me. I been in the gym. I'm trying to put on a little 10 pounds real quick."

Details about director Antoine Fuqua's film are scarce, but there is a budget in place and a finished script.

Gillie says, "Definitely got a budget in place for that right now, so I'm just waiting to find out when we shooting."
