After the huge success of F. Gary Gray’s N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, reports began circulating that a sequel of sorts was in the works. Dogg Pound member Daz Dillinger was said to be shopping the idea of a follow-up movie focusing on the rise of Death Row Records. It appears actors have been cast to star in the film tentatively titled Dogg Pound 4 Life.
According to TMZ, Daz Dillinger will be played by Azad Arnaud, Dr. Dre will be played by his son Curtis Young, Suge Knight will be played by Reggie Noble, Tupac will be played by DaDa, and Kurupt will be played by Melvin Jackson Jr. from The Wire.
Gray, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Universal Pictures are currently not involved in the making of Dogg Pound 4 Life. But Cube has reportedly given his blessing for the movie.
