tupac_movie_behind_The_scenes_launchTupac fans had to do a double take on the Vegas Strip as his tragic death was recreated ... and TMZ obtained the first photos from the set of a new biopic.

"All Eyez on Me" stars Demetrius Shipp, Jr. as 'Pac and Dominic L. Santana as Suge Knight. Check out this gallery of them filming the crucial scene ... with Demetrius in the passenger seat of the car moments before the fatal shots.

Local reporters actually rushed to the scene during filming, mistaking the blanks for real gunshots.

It's been almost 20 years since Tupac's death and conspiracy theories that he's alive and in hiding are stronger than ever -- but Shipp ain't buying it.

The movie's slated for release in November.

The Rock dropped the news that Pam will have a role in the big screen remake Thursday night by posting a pic of them all hugged up on the set.

Exclusive Details

42016-isabelle-fuhrmanFirefighters ran into kind of a nightmare while rescuing a teenager from an elevator ... since she's the same girl who scared the crap out of people in the horror movie, "Orphan." 

Isabelle Fuhrman was trapped Monday evening in an apartment building elevator ... and L.A. City Fire Department rushed to the rescue. When they got the doors open they came face-to-face with the actress who played creepy little Esther ... and her dog, Jennings.

Of course, she wasn't in costume and she's 19 now ... so none of the firefighters had to change their shorts. After the rescue, Isabelle tweeted, "When the fire department has to save you from your elevator ... thank you #LAFD." 

Conor McGregor Already Written Out of 'xXx' Movie ... Says Michael Bisping

4/20/2016 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Conor McGregor's not just out of UFC 200 -- he's also out of Vin Diesel's new 'xXx' movie ... and according to UFC star Michael Bisping, his part's already been written out. 

McGregor pulled out of the flick last month to focus on his rematch with Nate Diaz in July -- but now that Dana White yanked him from UFC 200 for refusing to participate in the promotional campaign, we were wondering if Conor would shift his focus back to Hollywood. 

But according to Bisping -- who has a role in the movie -- it's too little, too late. 

"His part got written out," Bisping said as he was leaving the set in Toronto. 

It's too bad for Conor ... Bisping says he's having a blast shooting the film -- and if it's any good, it could be a huge career booster for him. 

Sucks to be Conor right now. 

'Star Wars' Who Is Rey's Mom? Big Money Hint Uncovered

4/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

41916-daisy-ridley-rey-starwars-3The biggest mystery in the 'Star Wars' galaxy -- the identity of Rey's parents -- was partially and accidentally leaked by Lucasfilm lawyers ... at least that's how super fans will see it.

Lucasfilm just filed docs, obtained by TMZ, to own all merchandising rights for a character named Jyn Erso -- specifically for toys, clothing, footwear, books, school supplies, and stationery.

The filing happened one day after the trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" dropped ... introducing Jyn as the main character in that prequel.

Now, the connection to Rey -- the heroine of 'Force Awakens.'

'Star Wars' geeks immediately spotted similarities between Jyn and Rey -- facial features, British accents, and generally being kick-ass chicks. So, with the rumor mill already buzzing ... you know how this merchandising move looks.

Jyn's gonna be a big player ... and there's no bigger role than birthing Rey.

As for how it's done ... some words by the good Father, with a sprinkle of holy water before Sunday mass.  

Patrick's endgame ... protecting him from harm as he tools down the highway.



Doris Roberts Film Project in Jeopardy Cast Keeps Dying

4/19/2016 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0419_doris_roberts_gettyDoris Roberts' death is causing turmoil for a movie she was set to headline ... because she's the third big name attached to the flick who has died.

One of the last movie roles Doris signed on for was the female lead in "Old Soldiers" ... which is still securing its last bit of financing before it starts production.

Problem is ... 2 of the other major roles belonged to Mickey Rooney and James Best ... who died in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Producer Dave Rotan -- who is adamant on using actual WWII-era celebs for the road trip comedy -- tells us he's still optimistic about the film, but admits his "window of opportunity is quickly closing" on filling out a cast of elderly legends.

Rotan tells us he's not going to recast Doris' role yet -- for fear of jinxing anyone else -- and is still banking on Clifton James (94), Hugh O'Brian (91), and Rance Howard (87) to make it through filming.

The royal bros even geeked out over lightsabers, but Will needs a better grip.
