Tupac Shakur Biopic Producers Acquire Rights For Black Mafia Family Movie

L.T. Hutton and David Robinson are bringing Big Meech's story to the big screen.

L.T. Hutton and David Robinson, producers of Tupac Shakur’s upcoming biopic, have acquired the rights for the B.M.F. movie, which will focus on Black Mafia Family leader Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and the drug trafficking organization’s history.

According to HipHopWired, the producers are currently pulling the script together. “We have a passion and enthusiasm in bringing Big Meech's story to the big screen," said Hutton. “We're working closely with Meech and Tammy Cowins to make sure every aspect of the story is done correctly.”

The story will focus on the Detroit-based drug operation that later expanded across the United States in the ‘90s. The Black Mafia Family recently got a shout-out from Rick Ross, who named his single “B.M.F.”  after the organization.

    TUPAC MOVIE WILL BE DOPE NOTORIOUS WAS KINDA CORNY . prison scenes , deathrow days , and all

    Bunch of italian mafia imitating New York cornballs. They should make a movie about Bloods, Death Row, Orlando Anderson and David Mack. Real west coast Gs. Not New York wannabes. NY cornballs would did not even come to California to film their little La La video. Only New York "gangster" worth enough to be on a film is Supreme but even that would be just how he got Fifty shot and extorted millions from Irv and Ja.

      That would be an interesting movie about David Mack(Biggie's killer) and Orlando Anderson (Tupac's killer). Seems like the only thing west coast homos have done is destruction.

      Pleae use google before you assume. BMF has nothing to do with NY. The leaders are from Detroit and they wholesaled Cocaine to over 7 different states. They are directly linked with high level, Mexican Cartels. This why no nigga outside CA respect the west coast. Ya'll niggas ain't about making money. All ya'll niggas care about is block huggin, set reppin, and gang bangin. Meanwhile your all broke and when you go to the pen get raped by your fellow members. You west coast niggas is a bunch of faggots. Instead of making millions, you care more about what color you bangin or what set you reppin. Bunch of lames.

  • wo

    another druglord movie. why are these dudes getting movies writing about them. Make a movie about Huey Netwon or Oscar Grant or Sean Bell. On wait thats too positive. SMH on this one. steal a 1000 dollars you aint shit but still a million you're hero

    • V

      i understand your trying to say make positive movies about positive people. Why Sean Bell?? he didn't do anything out of the ordinary, he wasn't a Dr MLK like, he wasn't a Malcolm X type. He was a mediocre baseball player in high school and was unemployed at the time of his death. I hope you weren't just using his name just because he was black.

      I agree on you with this one. Thats why I'd rather they not make a film of BMF unless it is done right. But you have to admit they were and are different then all the regular crap we see and hear about. They actually weren't really violent and they gave back too. They made millions, and they didnt do it through fear, like other niggas, so my hats off to them. Another reason why I wanted white folks to make this movie, is cause at least then, guys that don't agree with this could reject it and blame it on white people. But since it's our own kind making these type of movies, a lot of people will just tell you FUBU. For us by us.

      @Tdot - Who the hell are you with this uppity attitude and what the hell have you done? You're a Tom that kisses up 2 white people, that's who you are... You need to check yourself. I commend Meech for giving other Black brothas a shot at producing the movie... I'm sure he wants his story told without too much fabrication just to entertain & glorify the street life & those whitey producers shouldn't even be given a chance to exploit & make millions off their story. After all, they were the BLACK Mafia Family.

    • TdotFrog

      I never said BMF is no name, I said the black guys writing the screenplay for the movie are. Instead of getting some white guys that helped write REAL gansgter movies, they go to some no name black producers/writers wo couldn't make a good movie to save their lives. Hype Williams? ...IS A JOKE!!! How many oscar nominations did that fool get? Guys like him cater to idiots like you, or dare I say a large part of the black community. Typical ignorance, "Notorious, and Belly" are NOT classics. Maybe you need to drop the Blunt and free up some brain cells because those too cheese fests are nothing short of idiotic. And I am black. Look at the contrast between my post and yours. Nuff Said.

    let lil b play pac

  • TdotFrog

    Damn Shame. Why the Fuck would Big Meech let some no name black producers/writers adapt his life's work to put in the big screen? Black writers suck, period. Look at all the garbage, like ATL, Notorious, Belly, etc. These no names are gonna make BMF's story play on reruns 4 years from now on BET. At least get the guys that wrote the screenplay for Boyz in da Hood.

    • TdotFrog

      The BMF story is huge, buddy. They were high level narcotics traffickers, with high level connections with the Mexican Mafia. They united different street gangs (crips, bloods) and united different states (Ga,Mi,Ca,etc.) On top of all that the Homie Big Meech was in the game and stayed in the game from 1985-2007 ish and made hundreds of millions. Ya, I think white producers would give a fuck about the story. And if they didnt at least they won't destroy his legacy, by making a piece of shit movie that gets played on BET every friday at 8.
