Direct Download Link For Mr. Untouchable Trailer

The story of big time Harlem heroin dealer Nicky Barnes is the subject of Marc levin's latest documentary, Mr. Untouchable. It should make a fascinating companion piece to Ridley Scott's American Gangster.

Download the trailer now.

If you've seen Carlito's Way: Rise to Power, then you've seen P. Diddy's turn as Hollywood Nikki, a character based on Nicky Barnes. The reality appears to have been rather different.

Wesley Snipes' Nino Brown from NEW JACK CITY was also based on Mr. Untouchable. As was the song "Bad Bad Leroy Brown."

Mr. Untouchable, the accompanying book (from Rugged Land press, available now!), AMERICAN GANGSTER and 50 Cent's CURTIS album were all originally intended to be released as close to simultaneously as possible. Numerous obstacles in planning kept this from being a reality.

How do I know? I worked on the book as an assistant to Nicky Barnes' ghost writer. I remain to be convinced if Cuba Gooding will do the part justice in Scott's film.
