The Internet has been buzzing over the details that have been trickling in about the upcoming film, Dogg Pound for Life, which will highlight Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur's rise to fame. Dr. Dre's son recently opened up about his role and the current status of the film.  As indicated in previous reports, Dre's son, Curtis Young, talks about how he will star as his father, who he met for the first time at age 20. He also discounted reports that the film will serve as a sequel to Straight Outta Compton, the N.W.A biopic that also portrays the legendary producer.

"There’s no sequel to Straight Outta Compton," Young said. "This is the Dogg Pound for Life movie. I’m cast to play my father. That is official. Right now they’re looking for funding."

Just last week, it was revealed that 50 Cent may have a hand in the production of the film after Universal Studios decided to pass on the idea. Young confirmed that 50 Cent has been in the mix.

"There are talks with 50 Cent and some other people," he said. "The script is pretty much done. I can’t really speak on the characters but I just got photos of who’s going to be playing who. I’m just really excited to be a part of it."

The film, still in its beginning stages, is yet to sign a director.

Music Times previously reported that Dogg Pound for Life will document Death Row Records, focusing on the careers of Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Warren G, Kurupt, currently incarcerated label head, Suge Knight and the late Tupac Shakur.

In the past few weeks, Marcc Rose, who played Pac in Compton, revealed that he's also working on a film about the rapper with John Singleton.
