    @SherlockHolmes2009, yeah I won't be surprised at all haha. And I agree, out of all the projects he is half-assing at the moment, I wish he would stop and whole-ass the Tupac film.

        I just want this guy to actually direct something. It seems like he gets attached to a new project every month and never goes anywhere with it.
