    A production company behind an upcoming biopic about hip hop artist Tupac Shakur acknowledged on Wednesday that the film's script was among those allegedly peddled by a Bahamian man who was arrested for hacking celebrities' email accounts, Reuters reported.

    Alonzo Knowles, 23, is being held without bail after a Tuesday appearance in Manhattan federal court on criminal copyright infringement and identity theft charges.

    Among the information that Knowles allegedly hacked was a recently finished script for "All Eyez On Me," a biopic of Shakur, who died in a 1996 shooting, according to Greg Mielcarz, executive vice president of marketing and publicity at Los Angeles-based Morgan Creek Productions, the studio making the movie.

    Earlier this month, Knowles offered to sell a popular radio host "a script for an upcoming hip hop artist biopic movie … once it is completed at the end of the month," according to a criminal complaint filed against Knowles on Tuesday.
