What happens when a film meets and surpasses expectations? Reportedly, Straight Outta Compton is getting the sequel treatment.
Dogg Pound vet Daz tells TMZ the movie will pick up where N.W.A. left off — following the careers of Snoop, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Daz and Warren G. We’re told the title is “Dogg Pound 4 Life.”
Tha DPG’s music will be the focus, but Daz says the follow-up also won’t whitewash gang violence and its impact on the rap industry.
As for casting — we’re told Dr. Dre‘s son, Curtis Young, will take over that role. No decision yet on who will play Snoop and Ice Cube … but it won’t be the same actors from ‘Compton.’ Dre and Cube won’t be producing, but Daz says Cube’s given his stamp of approval.
There is one huge loose end named Suge Knight. We’re told he’ll be included in the story — hard to omit since Deathrow was so huge — but the producers won’t be working with him.
Wait, so Ice Cube and Dr. Dre won’t be involved? Good luck with that.
Being that Snoop Dogg and Tupac were born in Long Beach, CA and Harlem, NY, respectively, the first order of business should be a new title.
