Snoop Dogg Biopic Announced

Just after it was announced Snoop Dogg would be starring in and producing the upcoming sports comedy The Underdoggs, it's now been revealed that a biopic about the rapper's life is also in the works.

The new movie will be directed by Allen Hughes and will be adapted from a screenplay by Joe Robert Cole, The Hollywood Reporter notes. The biopic will feature music from the Long Beach rapper’s catalog. The film will come from Universal Pictures, which handled the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton; Snoop Dogg was portrayed by Lakeith Stanfield in the 2015 film.

The news comes in the midst of a busy year for Snoop Dogg. In 2022, he has released several projects - including BODR, Metaverse: The NFT Drop, Vol. 1, Snoop Dogg Presents Death Row Summer 2022, Metaverse: The NFT Drop, Vol. 2, and Gangsta Grillz: I Still Got It. Coming up, on December 9, he and his Mount Westmore bandmates (Ice Cube, E-40, and Too $hort) will release a new album called Snoop, Cube, 40, $hort.

Back in February, Snoop Dogg performed with Dr. Dre and others during the Super Bowl LVI halftime show in Inglewood, California. He also rapped in a song with Eminem and teamed up with Kelly Clarkson to host the show American Song Contest.
