TUPACS ONLY WRITTEN SCREENPLAY ACQUIRED

6 May

Rights to Tupac Shakur’s only screenplay, which the late hip-hop artist wrote while in jail for weapons charges, has been acquired by Preston Holmes and Ivan Juzang’s NStar Studios. Shingle plans to put “Live 2 Tell” into production early next year.

Holmes, who collaborated with Shakur’s mother to make documentary “Tupac: Resurrection,” will produce “Live” along with “Hustle and Flow” producer Dwight Williams. Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur, will exec produce.

NStar pegs the budget at $11 million and hopes to start production in the first quarter of 2011.

Script tells the story of a teenage drug lord and his efforts to leave a life of crime. Shakur, who starred in films including John Singleton’s “Poetic Justice” before the artist’s death in 1996, wrote the screenplay during an 11-month sentence at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y.

“This kid was a genius, and the net of it is, he was from this community, he knew the struggles these young people were dealing with,” Juzang, whose urban advertising and market research firm MEE (Motivational Educational Entertainment) Prods. will work on “Live,” told Variety. “And he’s able to talk to young people in 2011, 2012, the same wasy he was able to talk to young people 1995.”

Holmes, who first became interested in “Live” while working as a production prexy at PolyGram Pictures-based Def Pictures, first reached out to Shakur about the script while the rapper was still serving his sentence at Clinton.

“We think that the name we need is the name we have, which is Tupac Shakur,” Holmes said.

EIKNARF VS. MATT SIREN

6 May

Unless you’re one of those shitty, old farts who gasp, recoil and speed away from the absolute horror of an otherwise boring wall blessed with an original piece of rebel art, you have probably noticed a new girl around town peeking at you from every corner of New York City. Everyone – allow us to formally introduce Ghost Girl.

Our very own EIKNARF chopped it up with Ghost Girl’s Dr. Frankenstein, Matt Siren, an artist and graphic designer whose notable work has been featured with Kazbah rockers Better Days, Brooklyn’s Wasabassco Burlesque, the Dresden Dolls and Substance Skateboards just to name a few killer collaborators.

Read on below, and definitely stay tuned for more from Siren:

Who are you and where are you from?

Matt Siren from Queens, New York.

Why the name “Matt Siren?”

Back in 2001 I put a few posters of a woman with tentacle arms and legs out on the street. On the bottom of the poster I tagged the word “Siren” to describe the start of a street poster series. A couple of years later when I went to tag the next series of posters I thought it would be bold to put a full name on there. Coupling Siren with my first name kept my identity safe and did the job of getting a “full” name out there.

What is Matt Siren mostly recognized for in the art/street art community?

I’ve put a strong focus on getting the image of Ghost Girl and the name “Matt Siren” out there. Right now I think that’s what people visually recognize me for the most.

Where do you pull your inspiration from?

Most of my inspiration comes from cartoons I used to watch as a kid, pin-ups, comics, graffiti and contemporary graphic poster design.

Where did the Ghost girl come from ?

Ghost girl came from two different sticker designs I created about six years ago. The first sticker was a simple graphic face of a female character I had started drawing with the phrase “PURE COMPOSITE” on it, and the second sticker was my version of the Pac-Man ghost. Through random experimentation I morphed the two designs together and was sort of surprised how well the shapes worked together. I thought it was a powerful enough icon to use as a representation of my work.

If you could only use one tool to “get up” for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

I would use stickers. They can go anywhere, they’re always consistent, you can make thousands, and they could potentially last forever in the right spots.
