Training Day director Antoine Fuqua’s much-anticipated movie about Tupac Shakur will concentrate on the rapper’s last day.

The hip-hop hero was gunned down and killed in Las Vegas in 1996 and the new film will feature flashbacks that link to Shakur’s final day on earth.

Production on the film, which was originally planned as a documentary, is expected to begin in November.

Fuqua hopes to cast an unknown as Shakur.
