In a recent interview with Vibe magazine Soulja Boy reveals he will take on the late Tupac Shakur’s role in a ‘Juice’ remake. I am a little reluctant to see this movie be remade. Tupac and Omar Epps did a great enough job in their roles to have this movie be left alone. Nonetheless, it’s looking very likely that the movie will be remade (and not everyone is happy about it, especially the fans.)
Here’ s what the young rapper had to say,
Basically, it’s your boy Soulja and I’m Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man. You know how the movie goes, but we’re flipping it and shooting in Atlanta. I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative—always giving them something new; that’s all. I got same video director that shot “Crank That,” “Kiss Me Through The Phone,” “Turn My Swag On” —my most successful videos. The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie.
Sounds like a great way to promote his mixtape to me. Not a bad idea. From my recollection his last album didn’t do so well.
What are your thoughts, should the movie be remade or left alone? I mean, why ruin a good thing right?
