Looks like these guys are wasting no time! After the success of Straight Outta Compton, it got the wheels turning on more biopics, and one of the first to be thrown into the pot was Dogg Pound 4 Life. Daz Dillinger wanted to pick up where Straight Outta Compton left off and dive deeper into the storylines of himself, Snoop Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound and more, and he has since assembled his cast to begin shooting. They do not have funding or a production home yet, however, so there is no guarantee this will make it to the silver screen.
As previously reported, Dr. Dre’s son Curtis Young will be portraying his father. None of the cast of SOC will join, though they did reportedly get Cube’s blessing to go ahead with the flick. As for the rest of the cast: Daz is played by Azad Arnaud, Suge Knight is played by Reggie Noble, The Lady of Rage will reportedly play herself, Tupac played by DaDa and Kurupt played by Melvin Jackson Jr. from The Wire.
Last night, the group recorded their first scene at an LA recording studio, where Suge, Tupac and Daz record “Ambitionz Az a Ridah,” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” in a 24-hour period. Take a look at more pics in the gallery and let us know your thoughts!
