Snoop Dogg’s trailblazing rap career will get the big-screen treatment.

The West Coast legend, 47, told Washington, DC, radio station Majic 102.3’s Vic Jagger that he’s talked to some producers about turning his life in a movie or TV series.

“I already got with somebody. I don’t even want to expose the names like that but I got some big wigs connected to it, some wigs. It’s like some wiggathons. If I said these names, I mean these are some real wiggathons,” he said before going on to name drop two Hollywood heavyweights. “So you want me to tell you their names? In conjunction with Lee Daniels and Ryan Coogler.”

Snoop, whose career stretches back to the early ’90s heyday of gangster rap, has grand plans for the project too, saying he envisions it as an epic.

“Late ‘60s with my mother and father,” he said. “Pops in Vietnam. ‘70s, when I was born in ’71, the hippie era, growing up. ‘80s, football, selling candy — uh oh! — cocaine, selling drugs, gang banging. ‘90s – unh! — rap.”

The project, if it gets off the ground, wouldn’t mark the first time the rapper has been portrayed on screen. “Atlanta” star Lakeith Stanfield played him in 2013’s “Straight Outta Compton.”

No word yet if there will be a scene set in 2018 where the rapper smokes a blunt in front of the White House and says “f—k” the president.
