We first reported on the Tupac project back in February, when Antoine Fuqua signed on to direct. The producers were planning on a summer shoot, although those plans will likely have to be scrapped now.
Southpaw was written by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. The story centers around a boxer who somehow manages to fight his way to a title shot, despite his personal life crumbling around him. We first reported on Southpaw in December, when DreamWorks bought Kurt Sutter's pitch.
