Director Benny Boom has tapped Kat Graham (‘The Vampire Diaries‘) to play the part of Pinkett Smith, who was a longtime friend of the rapper. Smith and Tupac first met in high school at the Baltimore School for the Arts.

To that lineup we can also add Danai Gurira of TV’s ‘The Walking Dead‘. Gurira has come aboard to play Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur. Afeni remains a very active part of anything that has to do with her son, she’s exec producing the film and is keeper of the flame on her son’s estate. has her work cut out for her to get the complex woman, she is a member of the Black Panthers with a healthy side as a political activist, on screen accurately.

Your mother told him to go. She knew that if Memphis stayed, you were gonna walk his line. You were gonna join his crew. But she told him to pick up and go. And he did, thinking it was best for you. He left all of us, for you. I guess it wasn't that big a deal for him though, really. Wasn't that big a sacrifice leaving everything he'd ever known behind. Than six years later, ain't life grand? You became a car boost anyway. How 'bout that?
