Snoop Dogg lands role in James Franco’s Future World

‘Beautiful’ rapper Snoop Dogg has joined the star-studded cast of James Franco’s ‘Future World’ alongside fellow hip hop star Method Man, model Suki Waterhouse, actresses Lucy Liu and Milla Jovovich and Franco himself.

The 44-year-old rapper has joined the star-studded movie alongside ‘Charlie’s Angels’ actress Lucy Liu, fellow hip hop star Method Man, Margarita Levieva, Jeffrey Wahlberg, model Suki Waterhouse and ‘Fifth Element’ actress Milla Jovovich – who will play a drug lord – and Franco himself.

The post-apocalyptic thriller will be produced by Andrea Lervolino alongside writer Jay Davis – who penned the screenplay – and Lervolino is thrilled to have such a talented ensemble cast.

He said: “‘Future World’ is a mesmerising story with the kind of boundary-pushing creativity unique to James. When you have the combined talents and gravitas of Milla, Lucy, Method Man, Suki, Snoop, and James interwoven through a wild story – what unfolds on screen is unreal.”

The forthcoming blockbuster, which is set in a post-apocalyptic world that is plagued with heat, ravaged by disease and crippled by chronic war, will follow the story of a young man of noble birth trying to survive in a ruined world.

The lad – expected to be portrayed by Franco himself – will have to make a risky journey through the wasteland with his trusty bodyguard in order to find medicine for his mother but along the way will be faced with extreme danger.

George Lewis Jr. has also joined the line-up, playing someone called Ratcatcher, but details of other characters are yet to be revealed.

It’s not yet known when the movie will go into production and no release date has been determined at time of publish.

Franco has experience of directing music stars after he helmed the movie ‘In Dubious Battle’ in which he also acted alongside Selena Gomez.
