Earlier this week Danai Gurira signed on to play Afeni Shakur in the film, and now she’ll be joined by Lauren Cohan, who’s best known for her role as Maggie on AMC’s hit zombie show. Cohan will portray Leila Steinberg, an early mentor of Tupac. Benny Boom is directing All Eyez, which stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. as the influential hip-hop artist. Production is underway on the movie, which does not yet have a release date. [Deadline]
