Morgan Creek Productions announced today that Voltage Pictures will handle international rights to the Tupac Shakur biopic, ALL EYEZ ON ME, starting this week at AFM in Santa Monica.   


ALL EYEZ ON ME, currently in post-production, chronicles the life and legacy of Tupac Shakur, including his rise to superstardom as a hip hop artist and actor, as well as his imprisonment and prolific, controversial time at Death Row Records, where he was steeped in the East coast/West coast rap war.

The feature film is written by Jeremy Haft & Ed Gonzalez and Steve Bagatourian, and is directed by Benny Boom (“Next Day Air”).  ALL EYEZ ON ME stars newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr as Tupac Shakur; Danai Gurira (“The Walking Dead”) as Afeni Shakur; Kat Graham (“The Vampire Diaries”) as Jada Pinkett; Annie Ilonzeh (“Empire”) as Kidada Jones; Lauren Cohan (“The Vampire Diaries”) as Leila Steinberg) and Jamal Woolard (“Notorious”) as Biggie Smalls.  James G Robinson and David Robinson from Morgan Creek are producing along with Program Pictures’ LT Hutton.  

President and COO of Voltage Pictures Jonathan Deckter said, “Benny and the team have made a highly stylized, emotional, entertaining, and relevant film which we look forward to bringing to the international community and the legions of Tupac fans worldwide.  In addition, I couldn’t be happier to work with Jim, Brian, David and the Morgan Creek team again.”

Brian Robinson, Managing Director of Morgan Creek added, “Jonathan Deckter and the team at Voltage have the same passion in selling this film as we had in making it.  We’re extremely excited to have them on-board.”

ALL EYEZ ON ME wrapped production in Atlanta and Las Vegas in May 2016.

Domestic distribution discussions are at an advanced stage and likely to close by mid-November.

The deal was negotiated by: Brian Robinson and Jessica VanderYacht of Morgan Creek; Glen Mastroberte of Latham & Watkins; and Jonathan Deckter and Christian Eimer of Voltage Pictures.

Man Missing the top half of his Head Appears in a Mugshot

This is inmate #100087196, also known as Carlos Rodriquez, who was recently charged with Prostitution/Solicit another to commit. The mugshot which can still be found at miami.whosarrested.com/inmates/214613-carlos-rodriguez, a database of Florida arrests, has being stirring up allot of controversy because of the fact that the pictures look like a fake. It looks as if the picture is real, as we found a previous arrest mugshot that show Rodriquez with a beard.

Rodriquez has been arrested many times during his young 25 years of life for disorderly intoxication, solicitation of a prostitute, possession of weed, and burglary.
