Soulja Boy Remaking Tupac’s “Juice”

Popular Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy thinks he has what it takes to reprise Pac’s role as “Bishop” in his own SODMG adaptation of the cult classic movie ‘Juice.’ Apparently, the film will coincide with his mixtape bearing the same name.

Below is what the young MC told VIBE about the  upcoming flick:

VIBE: Can you tell us a little bit about the story line for Juice?
SB: 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.

Did you cast any other rappers in the flick?
Yeah, man. Actually Cam’Ron reached out to get in the movie. Some of the original actors that were in the original reached out too. We’re in pre-production right now. We start filming on the Apr. 28th in Atlanta. It’s going to be crazy. Of course I’m going to have my S.O.D. family in there. We’re juicing up!

Who from the original movie is going to be in it? Raheem [Laughs]?
Not Raheem. You know the chubby one? He reached out. He actually wanted a part. I thought that was cool, so I told the director Rage to just go ahead and put him in the movie.

    Horrible idea. Same artist underneath a creative idea that should have been saved for a more respectable and talented artist…

  • barbara

    jealous haters stay on this interent trying to hate away America’s greatest talent.

    The haters above are probably fat azz Sean Kingston fans. That n8ggah is as jealous of Souljah as Biggie fat azz Smalls was of the Great Tupac. Souljah better watch his back and the company he keeps. Jealousy is as cruel as the grave.

    I think it is a bad idea because to me Juice is a classic and to remake it is like trying to remake the color purple it’s just some movies you leave alone and then to disrespect tupac with replacing him with soulja boy come on he better be a hell of an actor and after this he better get on another level with rapping no more of the bs step your game up.
