Didn't I tell ya we were going to start seeing a ton of films based on the 1990s cultural rap scene after the awesome success of Straight Outta Compton? So far we have a film based on the L.A. Riots that Ice Cube and his son are looking to make and a film based on DJ Greg Mack, who helped push N.W.A. into the mainstream.
Now rapper Daz Dillinger is working on a Straight Outta Compton sequel, but it's not being developed through Universal Pictures like the first film. I guess you could say this is kind of an unofficial sequel because producers Ice Cube and Dr. Dre aren’t involved with it either.
The move will be called Dogg Pound 4 Life. It will pick up right where the N.W.A. biopic left off, and it will focus on the careers of West Coast stars Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Warren G, Kurupt, and of course, Daz. The movie will also include various other people involved in the scene, like Dr.Dre, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and Suge Knight, but it won't include any of the actors who played those characters in Straight Outta Compton.
It was revealed that Dre’s son Curtis Young will play his dad in the movie, but no other casting information has been announced yet.
As for an official sequel to Straight Outta Compton, Universal isn't planning one right now. A spokesperson from the studio told EW, “At this time there are no plans for a Straight Outta Compton sequel." But Daz claims Cube gave him his blessing to make the sequel, of course, Cube’s publicist says he has not authorized a Straight Outta Compton sequel.
It sounds to me like this move will find itself in a legal bind somewhere down the road. If it ever does get made, there's obviously an audience out there that wants to see it. I would! I loved Straight Outta Compton!
