Get the latest on the Tupac Shakur biopic on the flip…
Like the NWA biopic, All Eyez on Me will take you through the life of rapper 2Pac. The final scene of the movie of the untimely death of Tupac was shot last week, (Tuesday April 12) at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Las Vegas, The Boombox reported.
The horrific scene that caused the “Brenda’s Got A Baby” rapper to lose his life, only three short days after being gunned down at that intersection, was reimagined, with film stars Demetrius Shipp, Jr., who plays Shakur in the film, and Dominic L. Santana, who plays Suge Knight, according to TMZ.
The final scene reflected the events of that night almost 20 yeas ago in a remarkable way; especially with the uncanny resemblance Shipp has to the late rapper. The newly recognized actor took to Instagram to show images of the final scene, where he dressed similarly to what Shakur wore on the night where he was shot multiple times while riding in the passenger seat of a vehicle that Knight was driving.
The newly successful actor, who used to be employed by Target, noted in his caption that luck had nothing to do with him landing the role of Shakur in this film but, it was “God’s planning.”
It appears the scene caused a tourist to react when hearing the gunshots while Benny Boom was shooting the final scene of the movie. The gunfire prompted local news stations to arrive at the scene after responding to reports of hearing rounds of firearms. Apparently tourist were unaware of the filming.
Though the gunshots that were heard that night were only blanks used for the effect of the movie, the gunshots that rang out on Sept. 7, 1996, were very real and very fatal; ultimately claiming the life of Shakur, six short days after he was shot. Authorities have still not been able to solve the drive-by homicide. – TMZ
