Soulja Boy Looking to Play Tupac Shakur in Biopic

Soulja Boy received some pretty negative feedback for reprising the roll played by Tupac Shakur in the film ‘Juice,’ but now it looks like he might also end up playing the slain rapper.

According to the 20-year-old, his talent agency wants to put him up for the part. “I got an email from William Morris Agency — that’s my agency that I’m with — they reached out to me to play the part. I’m just still thinking about it right now,” he told MTV News.

“Even with the whole ‘Juice’ movie, I’m playing a part that Tupac played, but I’m not actually playin’ ‘Pac,” the ‘Blowing Me Kisses’ rapper explained. “When it comes to this, I’m actually gonna be playin’ ‘Pac, so I’m really still just thinkin’ about it. But I’m just honored that they would reach out to me and ask me anyway.”

Although he’s contemplating whether or not to audition for the roll, he has completed filming the remake of ‘Juice’ to go along with his mixtape of the same name. The rapper says that the finished product is “crazy” and that he can’t wait to deliver the film to fans.

As previously reported, the Morgan Creek Pictures film will be directed by Antoine Fuqua and is set to begin filming this summer. The film will be shot in Los Angeles, New York and Las Vegas, which is where Shakur was murdered in 1996.
