According to Variety, filmmakers Emmett Malloy and Brendan Malloy—a.k.a. the Malloys—are making a documentary about Biggie Smalls. Tentatively titled Notorious B.I.G.: One More Chance, the film is being made in collaboration with Biggie’s estate and his mother, Voletta Wallace, and it will reportedly “feature Biggie’s music and focus on the impact [of] his work around the world.”

The Malloys are primarily music video directors, but they’ve occasionally branched out into music-themed documentaries like A Brokedown Melody, Under Great White Northern Lights, and Big Easy Express. This Biggie Smalls documentary is being produced by Submarine Entertainment, which was also behind Searching For Sugarman and 20 Feet From Stardom.
