Notorious B.I.G.’s Death Becomes True Crime in the City of Lies Trailer
Global Road Entertainment
On March 9, 1997 Notorious B.I.G. was shot dead in a drive by shooting. He had left a Vibe magazine party at the Petersen Automotive Museum in West L.A. At 12:45 a.m., when Biggie’s Chevy Suburban was only 50 yards away from the party, a Chevy Impala pulled up beside the car and a man in the driver’s seat rolled down the window and opened fire. Biggie was shot four times and was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center at 1:15 a.m. The case remains unsolved.
In 2006, after the investigation had been unsuccessful, Biggie’s mother and widow and children filed a $500 million wrongful death lawsuit that alleged a corrupt LAPD was responsible for the murder.
That botched investigation is now getting the film treatment with City of Lies, starring Johnny Depp as real-life LAPD detective Russell Poole, who led the case. As the synopsis reads:
LAPD detective Russell Poole (Johnny Depp) has spent years trying to solve his biggest case, but after two decades, the investigation remains open. ‘Jack’ Jackson (Forest Whitaker), a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why. In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies. Relentless in their hunt, these two determined men threaten to uncover the conspiracy and crack the foundation of the L.A.P.D. and an entire city.
The film is based on Randall Sullivan’s nonfiction book LAbyrinth.
