The legendary hitmaker Snoop Dogg is the latest celebrity to have a biopic made in their honour.
Snoop Dogg is a pop-icon and internation superstar, which begs the question – why did it take this long for a movie about him to be made?
On one hand, it could be said he was waiting for the stars to fully align, which they now have. The still untitle movie will be produced by Snoop’s newly formed production company, Death Row Picture. The movie will incorporate music from his storied career that dates back to his initial appearance on Dr. Dre’s The Chronic (1992) and his own hit solo studio debut, Doggystyle (1993).
Allen Hughes (The Book Of Eli) is set to direct a screenplay from Joe Robert Cole (Black Panther). Snoop Dogg will produce along with Hughes and Sara Ramaker.
Snoop had this to say about the project:
“I waited a long time to put this project together because I wanted to choose the right director, the perfect writer, and the greatest movie company I could partner with that could understand the legacy that I’m trying to portray on screen, and the memory I’m trying to leave behind. It was the perfect marriage. It was holy matrimony, not holy macaroni.”
No release date has been announced for the project yet.
