Behind-the-Scene Clip of 'Notorious' Presents Biggie in Concert
MTV has just posted an exclusive featurette of "Notorious". Featuring some of the first scenes when Jamal Woolard as Notorious B.I.G. tears up concert stage, the video footage is filled with commentary from many of the film's stars to MTV News correspondent Sway, who is the last reporter to interview the legendary rapper.
About the filming of the faux concert itself, director George Tillman Jr. shared to MTV News, "I want to make it feel like a concert. Like you're right there in the middle of a show." He then added, "On that day, it felt like I was performing with [Big], 'cause you go out backstage to shoot scenes, you see entourages, you see people with their own cliques hanging out. I felt like I was with a rap star."
Chronicling the short life of rapper Christopher Wallace a.k.a.Notorious B.I.G., "Notorious" features Angela Bassett as B.I.G.'s mother Voletta Wallace, Derek Luke as P. Diddy, Antonique Smith as Faith Evans, Anthony Mackie as Tupac Shakur, Anwan Glover as Snoop Dogg, Naturi Naughton as Lil' Kim and others. It is slated to be released in U.S. theaters on January 16, 2009.
