Suge Knight has signed with Beaux Carson's Carson Signature Films to allow his story -- as in his version of the events surrounding the shooting of rap icon Tupac Shakur -- to be told as a movie.


Carson pursued the Death Row Records impresario for two years trying to nail down rights.


The hugely-energetic Carson's already describing the planned film as ''Training Day' Meets 'The Godfather.'' Still, he stresses, 'We're not pointing any fingers, just telling a story' in the project. He also reports that Knight envisions doing a CD in conjunction with the film as a collaborative effort among rap figures of Tupac's time -- with portions of the proceeds going to fund programs serving under-privileged youth.


Those familiar with the never-solved murder of Tupac -- a case that's spawned big and small-screen documentaries, books, articles and a slew of conspiracy theories -- will recall that Knight was at the wheel of the BMW in which Shakur was slain in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. East Coast rapper Notorious B.I.G. and Shakur had been feuding for more than a year. B.I.G. was gunned down six months after Shakur's death. That killing also remains unsolved.


To hear Carson tell it, 6'2'', 300-plus-pound Knight is 'a teddy bear -- but if you take the teddy away, he can be a real bear.'
