Snoop Dogg has been cast in The Legend of Fillmore Slim, a biopic about the blues singer and guitarist that is set to begin production in March. The movie, largely set in the Sixties and Seventies, will follow Slim's career as both a guitarist and as a well-known pimp in San Francisco.
"This film will span decades," co-producer Alan Ames told Deadline Hollywood. "From Slim’s emergence as a musician, to his fascination with the fast life, through his years of incarceration and his redemption."
