"Straight Outta Compton" may have sequel in the works

"Straight Outta Compton" may have a sequel in the works already, reports TMZ.

Daz Dillinger of The Dogg Pound told the gossip site that a follow-up is planned. He said it will pick up where "Compton" left off and follow the rise of Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Daz and Warren G.

Dillinger said the film will focus on the Dogg Pound's music, but will also focus on the '90s climate of West Coast gangsta rap and include gang violence and drama.

He added that Dr. Dre's son, Curtis Young, will take over as his dad in the sequel, but the film will cast new actors to play Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. Dre and Cube will not participate as producers for the sequel, though Dillinger said Cube has approved the project.

Former CEO of Death Row Records Suge Knight will be included in the story, but will not participate in the project -- if at all comes to fruition.

"Straight Outta Compton" had a big debut, raking in more than $56 million at the box office last weekend.
