John Singleton has signed on to rewrite, direct and produce the highly anticipated biopic of late rapper Tupac Shakur. Singleton is currently working on a draft of the screenplay and looking towards a summer start date. The question of who will play Shakur is still up in the air but Singleton, who worked with the rapper on the film Poetic Justice, has personal ties to the project. "Tupac was a guy who I planned to do a lifetime of films with," said Singleton. "His passing deeply affected my life as well as countless people in this world. His life story is important to my generation." [HollywoodReporter]
With Singleton's involvement, the long-stalled project gets a second life.
Morgan Creek is financing in collaboration with Randall Emmett and George Furla's Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films. He will begin working on a draft of the screenplay immediately, with an eye toward a summer start date. With Singleton's involvement, the long-stalled project is getting a second life. Antoine Fuqua was attached to the project before falling off. Singleton also was loosely onboard as recently as two years ago, but his deal never closed, and he turned his attentions to the Taylor Lautner starrer Abduction.
The question now turns to who will play Shakur. Anthony Mackie played the slain rap star in the 2009 film Notorious about rival rapper Notorious B.I.G.

Lil' Kim's got a bun in the oven!
The petite rapper made a grand entrance at The Blonds fashion show during New York Fashion Week last night as she debuted a burgeoning baby bump.
During her performance at the fashion house's after-party, Kim, 39, reportedly told the crowd, "I'm a mom, but I can turn it up a little!" Decked in a body-con dress that accentuated her bump, Kim told Us Weekly, "I'm so excited! I'm a few months along, I can't wait to be a mom!"
But don't expect the Queen Bee to let pregnancy slow her down. "The baby has made me even more of a beast!" she added.
Kim is keeping the identity of her baby's father under wraps.Congrats!!!

Singer Rihanna is known for making grand purchases, but back in 2009, Rihanna almost found herself in the middle of a bankruptcy case thanks to her ex-accountant. Rih Rih filed a lawsuit against the accountant for gross mismanagement and new legal documents reveal exactly how much money Rihanna lost due to the money manager's terrible fiscal decisions.
According to the legal documents, Rihanna's former accountant mismanaged her money so bad that she blew through nine million dollars in 2009 and claims to have had no idea. At the beginning of 2009, the Bajan pop star had $11 million in cash and by December of the same year, she only had two million left. Needless to say, Rihanna was absolutely shocked that she blew through that much money in a year. On top of mismanaging millions of Rihanna's money, her accountant failed to tell her that her expenses had doubled in that year so she was seemingly left hung out to dry.
In case you're wondering how the "Diamonds" singer squandered nine million dollars, Rihanna says her accountant told her it was okay for her to purchase a house valued at seven and a half million. She bought the house and when she sold it, she lost two million in profits. As if the mansion debacle weren't enough, Rihanna also claims her 2009 tour "Last Girl on Earth" was losing money left and right and was never notified.
Although Rihanna was done wrong by her accountant, don't feel bad for her bank account because since 2009, she has built her fortune to the amount of $43 million. That's not bad for being nearly broke five years earlier.
