Snoop Dogg in serious "Starsky" talks

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that rapper/actor Snoop Dogg is in talks to star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ big-screen adaptation of the classic 1970s police-action series Starsky and Hutch for director Todd Phillips. The project will go into production in March. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson will star as the cop duo who race around the city in a bright red hot rod and report to their never-happy boss, Capt. Dobey. Huggy Bear (Snoop Dogg) is the duo’s flamboyant street informant.
