Dr. Dre's Son To Play His Father in Tha Dogg Pound's Movie

By Sermon

Tha Dogg Pound are currently in the beginning stages of putting together their biopic, which is not a sequel to Straight Outta Compton . While there's no director or company funding the movie yet, the collective have found their actor to play Dr. Dre. It's none other than Dre's son, Curtis Young. Young revealed the news to XXL.

"There’s no sequel to Straight Outta Compton. This is the Dogg Pound For Life movie. I’m cast to play my father," Young said. "That is official. Right now they’re looking for funding. There are talks with 50 Cent and some other people. 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."
It's been a long journey for the 33 year old.. He didn't even know Dre was his father until he was 12, and they met for the first time when he was 20.

Are you looking forward to a Dogg Pound movie?
