John Singleton out as 'Tupac' director
EXCLUSIVE: It's back to the drawing board on the Tupac Shakur movie, as John Singleton has dropped out of discussions to direct the long-gestating biopic, Variety's Josh Dickey reports. Singleton, who directed the slain rapper in POETIC JUSTICE, couldn't seal the deal to helm the project for Universal Pictures and Morgan Creek. He's the second director to drop out after Antoine Fuqua (TRAINING DAY) struggled to cast Shakur. Now that unenviable task will be someone else's headache.
