Snoop Dogg is starring in a new film based on an original pitch by himself and his business partner Constance Schwartz-Morini.
The Hip Hop legend has teamed with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris to produce a football comedy titled The Underdoggs for MGM. Snoop Dogg plays a former NFL star who agrees to coach a youth football team after getting into legal trouble.
“Snoop’s longtime commitment to his community via his youth football league is hugely inspiring to all of us at MGM,” MGM’s chief operating officer Chris Brearton said. “We are thrilled to be working alongside this incredible creative team to bring this great comedy to moviegoing audiences, and to further MGM’s commitment to the theatrical exhibition when it hits theaters next October.” Charles Stone, the director of Drumline and Paid in Full, will direct The Underdoggs.
The Snoop Dogg-led film hits theaters on October 20, 2023.
