Word on the curb is that Soulja Boy aka DeAndre Cortez Way, is planning to fill Tupac Shakur’s shoes in his legendary “Juice” role.
He specifically spoke about becoming “Bishop,” stating:
Basically, it’s your boy Soulja and I’m Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man. You know how the movie goes, but we’re flipping it and shooting in Atlanta.
I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative—always giving them something new; that’s all. I got same video director that shot ‘Crank That,’ ‘Kiss Me Through The Phone,’ ‘Turn My Swag On’ —my most successful videos.
The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie.
Filming will begin “soon”… whenever that is.
I’ve always had mad respect for SB and his hustle… but Juice? I dunno about that.
I’m sure that Pac’s “I don’t give a f*ck” attitude in the historic role is what all young gangsters aspire to be, but carrying off the role in a remake will be a challenge for even the best of ’em.
Do you think SouljaBoy will be able to fill 2pac’s shoes in a “Juice” remake?
