The bizarre saga of Elton Brand leaving the Clippers in 2009 had an interesting wrinkle. Brand was surrendering his proximity to Hollywood. Brand had long held an interest in film, along with friend Baron Davis (who Brand had helped recruit to join the Clippers before Brand bailed for Philadelphia). Of course, his downturn in production ruined any chance of being able to pull the strings all the way in Philly. But now, Brand's returning to his love, and helping to produce a film based on the life of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer
That's probably why the Sixers forward is trying his luck in the movie industry again, this time signing on as a co-producer for the upcoming film "Tupac," a biopic on the life and death of the West Coast hip-hop artist.

The Inquirer notes that Brand's working for Morgan Creek Productions, and the film has an established director (Antoine Fuqua of "Training Day" fame). Brand's development company in L.A. had several lawsuits brought against it, so this is a second effort to do things right. Brand's making all sorts of comebacks, with a solid year for the Sixers last year that helped Philadelphia make the playoffs. Now he's got something to fill his time during the lockout. 

It's good to diversify your interests.

Elton Brand making a movie about 2Pac

The investigation of Tupac's alleged murder was suspect from the jump, too much evidence and too many witnesses for them not to have ANY answers. they can find so-called terrorists in other countries thousands of miles away but not who killed a man on a vegas strip!!!! with that said TUPAC is still alive, at least until we ever find out the truth,IF... i hope this movie will be different than the other two on Tupac i saw, i mean at this point there is nothing extra to make a movie about. i see this as a intro to PAC'S come back.........out!!!!!!

Who Killed Tupac?

the government needs to reopen the investigation and find out who killed tupac.  Maybe this movie will get someone in the Obama camp to authorize all the money needed.
