PostSubject: Battle Over Tupac Movie Heading To Trial   Wed 02 Sep 2009, 10:25 pm

The battle between Afeni Shakur’s Amaru Entertainment and film company Morgan Creek Productions rages on over the making of a bio-pic about rapper Tupac Shakur. The two companies are locked in litigation over a movie on the life of Tupac Shakur. In a lawsuit filed last February, Morgan Creek accused Amaru of breaching a contract to produce a movie about Shakur, who was gunned down on the Las Vegas strip in September of 1996. Amaru filed a cross-complaint against Morgan Creek, claiming the production company interfered with other potential deals for the movie. Lawyers claim that Morgan Creek attempted to block other interested film companies from being involved in the film, by claiming to have exclusive rights to produce the untitled flick. "Morgan Creek has a history of bullying people into giving them rights they did not acquire. This time, they picked on the wrong people," said Skip Miller of Miller Barondess, LLP in Los Angeles, attorney for Amaru Entertainment. A trial date has now been set for Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Morgan Creek Productions is an American film studio that has released box-office hits like Young Guns, Major League, True Romance, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Crush, and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and others. The studio was co-founded in 1987 by James G. Robinson, and Joe Roth.
The studio has had a varied 22-year history that has seen the Santa Monica, California-based company shift domestic distribution bases from 20th Century Fox to Warner Bros. and, since July 2005, and onwards for the next three years, Universal Studios.
Founder Robinson continues to lead the company as chairman and CEO. His son, David C. Robinson, serves as vice president.
