Dr. Dre Inks Film Production Deal With New Line

Legendary music producer Dr. Dre has inked a multi-year film production deal with New Line Cinema. According to Variety, Dre will co-produce dark comedies and horror films with longtime collaborator Phillip Atwell, and will be closely involved in the music aspect of the projects through his newly formed company, Crucial Films. New Line president Toby Emmerich, who used to run the company’s music business, orchestrated the deal. “Everything Dre has worked on becomes a hit, and one of the reasons for that is that he never put his name on anything that he doesn’t really believe in,” Emmerich said. “His records have always been very narrative in nature, and you can tell from his songs that he understands how to tell a story. We’re excited to work with him as he branches out into the film world.” Dre has worked with New Line in the past, perhaps most notably on the score for the film Set It Off with Queen Latifah. “This is a natural switch for me, since I’ve directed a lot of music videos,” Dre told Variety. “And I eventually want to get into directing.”

  • Genius The Misfit

    Detox is still coming. Dre knows that the anticipation for his album has reached its highest point. His seven years is up, and not only the fans, but also Hip Hop needs this album. 2007 is the perfect year for a Dre release, what with the somewhat dissapointment of Kingdom Come. Like Jay said once before, Hip Hop needs “events”. We needed that Jay-Z album, we needed Nas’s new album, we need a new Eminem album, and now, more than ever, we need Detox. Right now. Dre knows timing is everything. He’s gonna give us Detox, his final masterpiece. Stop trippin.
