The comedian and rapper will play characters Bobby and Dice, lifelong best friends, who involve themselves in the risky game of political intrigue and giving personal favors, as Deadline describes.
Deadline reported that Lawrence and Snoop co-wrote the project, along with writer Patrick Aison, and it’s being produced by CBS TV Studios, as well as Jerry Bruckheimer.
Bruckheimer produced the “Bad Boys” films that star Lawrence and Will Smith. “Game” will also be a reunion for Lawrence and Snoop, who co-starred in the 2019 comedy film “The Beach Bum.”
For Lawrence, the upcoming political drama would be his latest project to be unveiled. The Hollywood Reporter revealed in January that he’d be reprising his role of Marcus Burnett for “Bad Boys 4,” that report coming at the same time that “Bad Boys For Life” was released.
Snoop, meanwhile, continues to move back and forth from rap music to hosting a VH1 show with Martha Stewart, to selling his own wine. Earlier this year, the West Coast rapper partnered with Australian wine brand 19 Crimes to release his own brand of wine called Snoop Cali Red.
The rapper teaming with Lawrence on “Game” would be consistent with his history of working and supporting Black comedians. In 2012 Snoop was a part of “Snoop Dogg Presents The Bad Girls of Comedy,” a comedy special that starred people like Luenell and Tiffany Haddish.
Neither Snoop nor Lawrence has mentioned anything about “Game” on their social media pages yet.
