Tupac Biography Lawsuit


The attorneys for Amaru Entertainment were able to earn a major victory against Morgan Creek Productions in the Superior Court for the State of California, in regard to the Tupac Shakur Biopic. Judge Richard E. Rico ruled in their favor and upheld Amaru Entertainment’s cross-complaint for tortious intentional interference, and has set a court trial date on April 13th, 2010. Morgan Creek originally filed suit against Amaru Entertainment in February, claiming that the company had backed out of negotiations and was refusing to honor and perform a contract of a production for a film based on the life of Tupac Shakur. Amaru claims that there was never any agreement as key deal terms had never been agreed upon between the parties. It is thought that Morgan Creek was attempting to bully Amaru Entertainment into doing a movie with them, and that this interfered with Amaru Entertainment’s negotiations for the film with other studios.

Skip Miller, one of the attorneys for Amaru Entertainment made the following comments…

“We are pleased with the court’s ruling yesterday morning. It supports our claim that Morgan Creek tortious interfered with the making of the Tupac Shakur movie. I look forward to trying this case and have the jury decide the matter. Morgan Creek has a history of bullying people into giving them rights they did not acquire. This time, they picked on the wrong people.”
