(AllHipHop News) After the huge success of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, other legendary rap stars’ names have been discussed as possibly being future subjects of a biographical movie. Brooklyn rhymer Maino suggests a film already made about one of his fellow Bedford-Stuyvesant representatives should be getting the reboot treatment.

“I want them to do the B.I.G. movie over. I think it was done a little too early,” Maino tells DJ Smallz. “I want them to really get that one done right. I think you have to let a little bit of time go, because you want to speak to another generation.”
The life of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace was depicted in the 2009 motion picture Notorious. The film was released just 12 years after the death of the iconic emcee. Notorious reportedly grossed $36 million at the domestic box office, and the George Tillman, Jr. directed movie was met with mixed reviews from critics.
