Behind The Scenes Footage From The Tupac Biopic Shows The Star’s Resemblance Is Scary
Last month brought the first look at a trailer for the upcoming Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me, and now behind the scenes footage gives a closer look at the cast and characters portrayed in the film.
Among those featured in the nearly 15-minute long clip are Demetrius Shipp, Jr. (Tupac), Jamal “Gravy” Woolard (The Notorious B.I.G.), Dominic L. Santana (Suge Knight), Grace Gibson (Faith Evans) and Jermaine Carter (The Outlawz’s Hussein Fatal). Each of the stars details how he or she came to be associated with All Eyez On Me, as well as what it was like to embody his or her character. Additionally, the film’s writers, Ed Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, as well as actual Outlaw, Young Noble, give insight into the real-life Tupac and how the story was crafted.
The video gives a backstage look at various scenes being shot on set, as well as familiarizing the viewer with the cast in their natural elements. Seeing them in full wardrobe, the resemblances are striking. Shipp’s appearance is particularly unnerving.
All Eyez On Me is in theaters on November 11, 2016.
