Fuqua takes on B.I.G. job

Fox Searchlight is in negotiations with “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua to direct a bigscreen version of the life and times of late rapper the Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls and Christopher Wallace. The script is being penned by Cheo Hodari Coker, a former journalist who also authored the bio “Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G.” The movie is being produced by Wallace’s mother, Voletta Wallace, and by his former managers, Wayne Barrow and Mark Pitts. In a statement release by the studio, Wallace’s mother said that while there have been several documentaries “about Biggie the rapper, nobody knows Christopher the human being. He was somebody with feelings, somebody with a heart. Christopher was a son, a father and a good friend. He had so much genuine love for people. It’s time for people to know the real him.”
