OS ANGELES - A screenplay written by slain rapper Tupac Shakur is being produced as a feature film.


"Live 2 Tell," a script Shakur wrote in 1995 about an inner-city black youth who becomes a drug kingpin and later goes straight, was acquired by Insomnia Media Group, which plans to begin production next March, company Chairman Bret Saxon and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bowler said Tuesday.

Insomnia acquired the rights from Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, who will be a producer on the film, which has not yet been cast.

Tupac, who appeared in such films as "Poetic Justice," "Above the Rim" and "Gridlock'd," had written "Live 2 Tell" for himself to star in.

The rapper was gunned down on the Las Vegas Strip in 1996. His murder remains unsolved.

Other projects by Insomnia include an upcoming film biography of

Napster creator Shawn Fanning and the tattoo-parlor reality TV show "Inked."
