First Look | Notorious

25 06 2008

Film producer Wayne Barrow takes us behind the scene with his on-set, video diaries from the upcoming Fox Searchlight Picture release, “Notorious.”

Featuring perspectives from Biggie’s mom, Voletta Wallace, director George Tillman, as well as cast and crew members, the film was shot on the very locations where he lived. “Notorious” is one of the most anticipated films of early 2009.

“Notorious” is about the life of rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. In just a few short years, The Notorious B.I.G. rose from the streets of Brooklyn to become one of the most influential hip hop artists of all time. B.I.G. was a gifted storyteller; his narratives about violent life on the streets were told with a gritty, objective realism that won him enormous respect and credibility. His stories were universal and gave a voice to his generation.

The film stars multiple award winner Angela Bassett as Christopher’s mother Ms. Wallace, Derek Luke as Sean Combs, Anthony Mackie as Tupac Shakur and introducing Jamal Woolard as The Notorious B.I.G.

“Notorious” opens nationwide on January 16, 2009.
