Additional score material was composed and recorded by Hank Shocklee. The official soundtrack album for American Gangster was released by Def Jam Recordings within a week of the film's release.

Denzel Washington pressed Grazer into inviting rapper Jay-Z to write the film's score, but the producer "just didn't think there'd be enough for Jay-Z to do" given the intentions to do a soundtrack filled with s music.

The film had a profound resonance on the musician, who decided to create a concept album, also entitled American Gangster.

It was speculated that the album's release in conjunction with the film would attract a young audience and help Universal Pictures generate profits to recover from the film's troubled development history.

American gamgster -

Um aus dem Prozess noch glimpflich herauszukommen, verhandelt Lucas mit den Beamten. Stellenweise gerät die Geschichte etwas schleppend und alles wirkt leicht langatmig bzw langweilig , aber dennoch ist es ein guter Polizeikrimi um Drogen , Korruption , Bestechung , Erpressung etc etc etc. Alle diese Schauspieler sorgten dafür, dass der Film von Erfolg gekrönt wurde. Ab hier nur in der Extended Version: Mit allem Equipment diese Touren zu machen, sagt eine Menge über die finanziellen Mittel aus, die der Regisseur benötigte. Er ist schwarz, nicht italienisch, und betrachtete das Drogendealen wie ein ganz normales Geschäft in der legalen Wirtschaft.

His low overhead allows him to eventually wholesale Blue Magic to most of the dealers in the New York area. With this monopoly, Lucas expands his control to nightclubs, casinos, and prostitution.

He buys a mansion for his mother and recruits his five brothers, including Huey and Turner, as lieutenants to spread his empire. During his rise to becoming Harlem's crime boss, Lucas falls in love with Eva, a Puerto Rican beauty queen.

As Lucas' business prospers, he makes a point of operating quietly and dressing with a modest conservatism both as a sign of strength and to avoid attracting police attention.

Also, he stays away from the drugs to avoid making hard decisions under the influence. However, Lucas violates these principles when he attends the Fight of the Century with Eva, sporting gaudy clothes that were a present by Eva; Roberts attends the fight, notices the previously unknown Lucas with even better seats than the Italian mobsters, and investigates him.

Meanwhile, Lucas needs to deal with Lucchese mafia boss Dominic Cattano, who threatens to destroy Lucas' family unless he gets in on a deal, and corrupt NYPD detectives led by Nick Trupo, who attempts to extort and blackmail him to give them a cut.

Lucas must also compete with local crime figure Nicky Barnes , a young gun trying to take over Harlem who has been diluting Lucas' Blue Magic and selling it under the same brand name.

After the Fall of Saigon cuts off Lucas' supply, he is forced to rely on the other crime rings. Roberts' detectives witness Frank Lucas' cousin and driver shoot a woman and then use the threat of a long sentence to get him to wear a wire.

The gathered information allows Roberts and his task force to identify and search one of the last planes carrying Lucas' stock, discovering Blue Magic in the coffins of dead returning servicemen.

With this evidence they obtain a warrant to follow the drugs into Newark's projects and Lucas' heroin processing facility.

In the ensuing shootout, Steve Lucas, Frank Lucas' young nephew who gave up a promising career for the New York Yankees to join Lucas' crime family, is killed.

Meanwhile, Trupo, whose prized Shelby Mustang Lucas had destroyed, and his men break into Lucas' mansion to steal his emergency cash supply hidden under the doghouse, killing the dog.

As Lucas gets ready to go after Trupo, his mother dissuades him from killing a cop, warning him that she and Eva will leave him if he does. Lucas is arrested after Roberts' team conducts a raid on the shops run by his brothers.

In the police station, Lucas offers to bribe Roberts, but is rebuffed. Instead, Roberts offers Lucas a chance at a shorter jail sentence if he aids his investigation of dirty cops in the NYPD and Lucas duly provides Roberts with the names.

Roberts, having just passed the bar exam, defends Lucas as his first client. Lucas is sentenced to 70 years in prison, of which he serves 15 years and is released in However, Scott did not immediately pursue the project, choosing to make Kingdom of Heaven instead.

Production of Tru Blu was reset to begin in early fall , with the film slated for a release date of June 3, The studio also sought for American Gangster to be produced in Toronto rather than New York City to save money, but Fuqua resisted the re-location.

The studio's parent company General Electric received tax credits in New York City, so production was moved to the city.

Fuqua's camp insisted that it was seeking ways to reduce the budget, but the studio contended several aspects of the project under him.

The director had wanted to film a Vietnam sequence in Thailand and to cast notable names such as Ray Liotta and John C. Reilly in minor roles.

To add to the studio's budgetary concerns, Fuqua was rewriting the script during the preproduction process. The director also did not have a shot-list, final locations, and supporting actors signed to initiate production.

Fuqua was fired on October 1, , four weeks before principal photography would begin. After a meeting between Scott and Zaillian on another project, Zaillian brought the project up again with Scott, who decided he was ready to do it.

Washington returned to his role as Lucas, and Russell Crowe was attached to star as Roberts. Scott had discussed the script with Crowe as they worked on A Good Year in France, and they sought to take on the project.

The director reviewed Zaillian's script, Terry George's rewrite, and a revision by Richard Price during the project's incarnation with director Antoine Fuqua.

Scott preferred Zaillian's approach and chose to follow it. In realizing the project, the director encountered a challenge in the script since the characters Frank Lucas and Richie Roberts do not encounter each other until twenty minutes before the end of the film.

The director sought to flesh out the private universes of the characters that would evolve and have scenes cut between the two characters to provide a balance.

Elements like Frank Lucas's interaction with his family and Richie Roberts' dysfunctional marriage were written to add to the characters' backgrounds.

The film somewhat focuses on the comparatively ethical business practices of the "wicked gangster" and the womanizing and failed marriage of the "do-gooder" police detective.

Washington, who was not normally a fan of gangster films, chose to portray Lucas when he saw "the arc of the character" had ended with prices that Lucas paid for his actions.

Washington acquired Lucas's Southern accent, and Crowe practiced to match Roberts's manner of speaking and body language, requesting tape recordings of Roberts to assist in his preparation.

Principal photography began in July in New York City. Approximately fifty to sixty locations were set in Harlem alone. While in the neighbourhood, Scott stated that he found several interiors that had been untouched since the s.

Scott found filming in Harlem to be difficult, commenting that the rapid gentrification in Harlem provided poor opportunities for shooting angles.

Briarcliff Manor in upstate New York had the locations for both the Lucas farm and the estate Lucas buys for his family. Using his experience from visiting New York in the same time period in which the film's story took place, Scott sought to downplay a " Beatles " atmosphere to the film and to instead create a shabbier atmosphere, saying that "Harlem was really, really shabby, beautiful brownstones falling apart.

Denzel Washington, as Frank Lucas, went through 64 different costume changes. In , Greg Calloway was approached by producers to produce a soundtrack for the film.

He presented the idea to Atlantic Records chairman Craig Kallman , and one of the company's artists, T.

However, the deal did not go further because Universal Pictures owned the rights to the film; "It was a Universal film and they were not going to give the soundtrack to WMG " Atlantic's parent company.

The composer stated that "the overall tone needed to be something bigger and darker" given the characters' strong personalities, and while not being the original intention, he added shades of blues and soul music to fit the s setting.
