'Straight Outta Compton' Sequel Coming Soon

N.W.A. biopic 'Straight Outta Compton' will get a sequel featuring the rise of Snoop Dogg and the death of Tupac Shakur.

N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton was a box office hit this weekend making over $50 million. So it's interesting that in a follow up to the West Coast rappers will include Snoop Dogg and the late Tupac Shakur. TMZ reports that a sequel is being lined up about D.P.G featuring artists Warren G and nate Dogg, which will be called Dogg Pound 4 Life. Adam J. Sablich / Shutterstock.com Adam J. Sablich / Shutterstock.com Daz Dillinger, one half of The Dogg Pound which was also founded by Kurupt in 1992, told the website that the movie will pick up where N.W.A left off in 1991. The D.P.G. music will be the basis of the storyline, but the 42-year old said that the sequel will not sensor the violence like 'Straight Outta Compton' did. Suge Knight for example, the Death Row producer once accused of killing Tupac and Bigge Smalls, is also thought to be featured in the upcoming Straight Outta Compton sequel. The members of N.W.A - featuring Compton hip hop artist's Eazy-E, Ice Cube and Doctor Dre- made up a majority of the first film. It was produced by Ice Cube and Dr. Dre and had a bigger opening than Eminem's 8 Mile movie in 2002, and Notorious, about rapper Notorious B.I.G. that opened to only $20.5 million in 2009. Straight Outta Compton N.W.A's 'Straight Outta Compton' biopic stars O'Shea Jackson Jr.as his dad Ice Cube and Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre in the story about how N.W.A. emerged in the 1980s in response to life in the hood and police brutality in Los Angeles. The sequel to 'Straight Outta Compton' is expected to include Dr. Dre's son Curtis Young this time, but actors for the role of Snoop and Ice Cube have not been announced yet. Which means casting directors are still casting. TMZ has confirmed though that Ice Cube, who is currently promoting the movie in London this week, will not be involved with producing the sequel.
