Sean "Diddy" Combs has publicly confirmed that he will be the executive producer on a biopic centered on the life of his late best friend, the deceased rapper Notorious BIG.
NME reports that Fox Searchlight held an open audition yesterday searching someone resembling the rapper; it didn't matter whether the applicant was an actor or not. It was also revealed that the film will be based on the book Unbelievable: The Life, Death and Afterlife of the Notorious BIG. This project promises to show the personal and private side of Christopher Wallace as well as the public persona of Biggie Smalls.
