Director Antoine Fuqua Drops "Tupac" Biopic for Eminem's "Southpaw"

Posted: June 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Director Antoine Fuqua Drops "Tupac" Biopic for EminemSubmit Comment
"Training Day" director Antoine Fuqua has been working on a Tupac Shakur biopic that was set to begin filming this summer. But now comes word that Fuqua has dropped out and will instead helm Eminem's "Southpaw" movie.

In "Southpaw," Eminem will play a fast-rising welterweight boxer who brawls his way to the title, only to see his world crash down around him due to tragedy. The story will be about his fight to reclaim past glory.

The film is a DreamWorks project that is being written by "Son of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter. The plan is to begin shooting later this year.

Sounds like sh*t. At least with the Tupac hagiography, he had a chance at financial solvency.

I wonder if Antoine Fuqua ever realizes he's wasting his time on this sh*t when he could, at least, make more films like Training Day and Shooter, because no one but trailer park trash cares a f*ck about that peanut-headed M and M.

I bet eminem couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag. He's just like fiddy living his imaginary dreams through cinema.

Who the f*ck cares where Eminem came from in America? Just some skinny white kid that managed to win the proverbial rap lottery with a combination of attitude, drug use, and repeated woman beating which are all attributes that he picked up from the urban African American areas...

...Which they mainly took from a completely fictional character in a movie written by a very white Oliver Stone, and played by a very white actor named Al Pacino.

Crimes pretty f*cking high in Beirut and death is pretty much around any corner, but no one here would ever extend a single amount of respect to Fulaqa Mohummad the guy that immigrated from there to your local community just to run the local Shop Qwik.

Where you are born means jack and sh*t, saints & sinners, great men or complete whiny-assed douchebags, you can pretty much come from anywhere.

I'm sorry that Eminem's life sucked so bad from the get-go that he was born in Detroit, but in case your fantasizing that things can only be tough in that particular city, I'd suggest you open your f*cking eyes and take a long walk in the area that you are currently living in...

...Because in case you didn't know, things are tough all over.

I'm from Flint and still live here. That doesn't make me an automatic badass nor does being from the outskirts of the D make Eminem a tough guy. That's too bad Fuqua dropped out, I really wanted to see how that Tupac movie ended.
