According to Vibe, The “All Eyez on Me” Tupac biopic has added newest additions to the cast for the roles of Afeni Shakur and Faith Evans.
Danai Gurira will play Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother, who in the movie has a “prominent hand in the way her son’s story will unfold.” Gurira recently starred along side Lupita Nyong’o in the off-Broadway play Eclipsed. She is widely known as the bad ass zombie slayer Michonne on The Walking Dead.
Grace Gibson will star as R&B singer Faith Evans. Gibson is fairly new to the scene, only starring in the 2013 film Black Nativity as Maria/Mary. No worries, being the daughter of world-renowned actress Lynn Whitfield mean she has acting in her blood.
No set release date for All Eyez On Me but director LT Hutton says to expect it later this year.
