A 21-year-old man was left in critical condition after being stabbed several times at the party at the Djumbala club in Brooklyn. Three others were listed in stable condition after the incident on Saturday night.
Although the party had been promoted as the “official after-party” for the film, Fox Searchlight, the studio which released the movie, said it had no affiliation with the event, according to the AP.
“Notorious” chronicles the rise of East Coast rapper Christopher Wallace, aka Biggie Smalls, before he was killed in Los Angeles in 1997.
The film, starring Jamal Woolard as Wallace, opened at No. 4 at this weekend’s box office, taking in an estimated $24 million.
When contacted by Access Hollywood, an employee at Djumbala said the club had “no comment” on the incident.
The Brooklyn nightclub stabbing is not the only incident of violence to be tied to the film.
One local news report out of North Carolina said Woolard, the film’s star, was actually in attendance at the time of the shooting.
