Snoop Dogg Says He's In Talks With Ryan Coogler And Lee Daniels To Make A Biopic Based On His Life

In a new interview, Snoop Dogg says he is in talks to make a biopic and has looped in some big-name producers.

The rapper told Vic Jagger of Washington, D.C.’s Majic 102.3 radio station: “I already got with somebody. I don’t even want to expose the names like that, but I got some big wigs connected to it, some wigs. It’s like some wiggathons. If I said these names, I mean these are some real wiggathons. So you want me to tell you their names? In conjunction with Lee Daniels and Ryan Coogler.”

On the format he wants, he said, “I’m thinking more along the lines of when you watch great shows like Narcos on Netflix…You know, how like Narcos went from Escobar to the Cali cartel, now it’s about to go to Mexico.”

No official announcements or confirmations have been made about a project.

Snoop Dogg was portrayed onscreen a few years back by Lakeith Stanfield in Straight Outta Compton and by Jarrett Ellis in last year’s All Eyez on Me.
