Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg may be a master of rhyme, but he's no stranger to the world of fine cinema. Snoop parlayed his music career into starring roles in such films as "Training Day," "Bones," "The Wash" and "Starsky & Hutch." Heck, he even found a way to show up in the mother of reality television, "The Real Cancun." Snoop knows show business.
Now, he's set his sights on helping the next generation of eager entertainment wunderkinds. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Snoop is teaming up with newcomer Wiz Khalifa on "High School," a new movie that the rapper calls "a comedy stoner movie, a little something for the stoners." Meaning... there's a little extra emphasis on the "high" part.
The project blossomed from Snoop and Wiz's collaborative efforts and friendship. Both musicians have albums on the way (Wiz's debut "Rolling Papers" bows on March 29, while Snoop's "Doggumentary" lands the same day), so a new flick could ride that momentum to theaters.
The movie is set to start shooting the first week of May, but little else is known of who Wiz and Snoop will playing in the film or what they'll be doing (besides, presumably, smoking a lot of pot). As long as it doesn't infringe on the legacy of Method Man and Redman's 2001 masterpiece "How High," we're all for it.
