Straight Outta Compton (2015) Movie Image

Ice Cube, Eazy-E, and Dr. Dre of N.W.A. (or at least the guys playing them) will be coming “Straight Outta Compton” on August 14, 2015. With plenty of attitude, presumably.

Pictured above are the remaining members of the rap group, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, posing with director F. Gary Gray (middle), along with actors O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell. The third member of N.W.A., Eazy-E died back in the mid-90s from complications of AIDS.

In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

Starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E, STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job). The drama is produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, who are joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer of the film alongside Gray.

You wouldn’t know it to look at him now, but Ice Cube used to be one scary mother. I guess marriage, family life, and good ol fashion old age can mellow a fella out.

      Anthony Mackie needs to reprise the role of 2Pac for a biopic. He wasn’t bad in “Notorious” which I really liked, but he’s grown a lot as an actor.

    Why no mention of Ren? He was in NWA a long time as well.

      Possibly family didn’t want him to be a main character. I’m sure he’ll be in it though.
