All Eyez On Me movie producer L.T. Hutton breaks the silence on why the highly-anticipated movie doesn’t have a release date yet.
Ever since the first trailer for the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me hit the web, people have been wondering when it was coming out. Some were even convinced the movie got pushed back. But producer L.T. Hutton has come out to remind people that there never was a release date, but that the film will be coming soon.
“Real quick public service announcement, there is no November release date,” Hutton explains in an Instagram video. Rumors began circulating when a Nov. 11 release date was posted on IMDB. “The release date is coming very soon. I’m going to make that announcement. But we didn’t push back. We never had the release date. We never set a release date. We’re gonna set that very soon.”
“The release date is coming very soon. I’m going to make that announcement. But we didn’t push back. We never had the release date. We never set a release date. We’re gonna set that very soon.”
He continues, “The film is healthy, we’re just doing what we gotta do. There’s more to distribution than what people understand. There’s more to post [production] than what people understand. The film, we just wanted it to be perfect. The integrity of this film matters. That’s the most important thing. So there’s things that I’ma keep on fighting for and make sure this thing stays authentic. We not just gonna go with any company that wants to just cut this down or take this out or move this around just because they say so. I promised to lie down in front of a Mack truck before I let somebody mess this film up and that’s what I’ma do. So give me a few more seconds, I’m gonna have a release date for y’all very soon.”
Hutton’s video was accompanied by a message stressing that the film is about Tupac, “not about a company, not about a director.”
Earlier this week, John Singleton came out and said he already knows “they f*cked it up” when asked about the team making the film. Singleton was slated to direct the movie, but says he walked away from the project because he felt the film lacked integrity. Hutton says that he fired him.
The movie can’t come soon enough. A movie and television project revolving around the death and police investigation of his murder are already in the works. It would be refreshing to see a movie about him actually living.
