It looks like now is the time for hip-hop biopics.
The most recent announcement is from New Line who is planning a biopic on N.W.A. Titled "Straight Outta Compton," the pic is planned to chart the rise and fall of the controversial group as they were banned in many media forms and rose to sell millions of records.
The film's producers are reported to include Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Tomica Wright (Eazy-E's widow). There is no director as of yet thought it is said they are looking for one a la Curtis Hanson (8 Mile).
Can you imagine who they would cast for this?
