B.I.G. on Big Screen



Late rapper Notorious B.I.G. is getting the big-screen treatment.

Fox Searchlight Pictures said on Wednesday it has bought the rights to make a film about the life of late rapper Notorious B.I.G.. To start working on that project, journalist Cheo Hodari Coker has been tapped to write the biopic and Antoine Fuqua is set to direct.

Producing the film will be B.I.G.'s mother, Voletta Wallace, and his former managers Wayne Barrow and Mark Pitts. Detailing about the set, Barrow said the three of them had been trying to get a film off the ground for the last five years.
