The long-delayed Tupac Shakur biopic is slated to begin filming in June (15).

The film about the late rapper was initially scheduled to start production in 2011, but it was delayed due to a lengthy legal battle between production company Morgan Creek and the star's mother Afeni Shakur.

The dispute has since been settled and the film's producer Randall Emmett has now revealed filming is slated to begin in the summer (15).

He tells, "The script is great and we're ready to make the movie. We're just prepping the logistics."

Poetic Justice director John Singleton, who was a friend of the late rapper, is slated to take charge of the biopic.
