LOS ANGELES, CA Monday Sep.3.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- According to the World Entertainment News Network, R&B singer Sean Kingston has not been cast in the new Notorious B.I.G. biopic as was earlier reported.

Movie producer and former Notorious B.I.G. manager Wayne Barrow tells AllHipHop.com, "As producers of the biopic Notorious, we felt compelled to quell the various false media reports indicating Sean Kingston has landed the coveted role of portraying The Notorious B.I.G. in the upcoming film.

"The role for B.I.G. is 100 per cent open and we are diligently searching for the individual to seize the moment and fill those giant shoes of greatness, everyone is being considered, including Sean Kingston but no one has been chosen."

The film is slated for release in 2009, and will be executive produced by Sean 'Diddy' Combs.
