Annie Ilonzeh will play the late rapper's fiancée Kidada Jones and daughter of Quincy Jones.
The Tupac biopic, All Eyez on Me, has cast its Kidada Jones.
Annie Ilonzeh has landed the role of ‘Pac’s fiancée Kidada Jones, daughter of Quincy Jones, who was engaged to the rapper at the time of his death.
The Morgan Creek production is currently filming in Atlanta, but hit a snag last year when production company Emmett Furla Oasis filed a lawsuit against Morgan Creek for $10 million, alleging that the company breeched an agreement by going over budget and selecting a lead actor without proper approval. Demetrius Shipp Jr. is currently set to play Tupac. Danai Gurira and Jamal Woolard star as Afeni Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. respectively.
This is a project people have been waiting to see for years, so hopefully it’s smooth sailing from now on.
