Directed by Andy Capper, Reincarnated will open in theaters in New York, L.A., San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and Atlanta. VICE Films and Snoopadelic Films will release the doc, according to THR.
In Toronto in September, Snoop Dogg, whose actual name is Calvin Broadus, talked about transitioning to his new raggae-centered alter-ego, "Snoop Lion," though he was emphatic that "Dogg" was alive and well. ""I'm Snoop Motherfuckin' Dogg till the day I die," he said. "But at the same time when I'm making my reggae music I'm in the light of the Lion."
Reincarnated follows Snoop's journey to the birthplace of reggae, Trench Town, Jamaica, which once ground zero for Bob Marle, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. In the doc, Snoop recalls his beginnings in Long Beach, CA to international fame and his transition to "Snoop Lion."
