On the heels of Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) revelation that “Straight Outta Compton” is one of his all-time favorite rap songs comes word that a movie based on the life of the legendary rap group N.W.A. is very much on its way to theaters.
Negotiations are underway for Universal Pictures to pick up “Straight Outta Compton,” F. Gary Gray’s feature film about the hip hop band N.W.A., from New Line, a person familiar with the situation has told TheWrap.
The feature follows the legendary hip hop band’s rise to stardom, from being teenagers in poor Los Angeles neighborhoods to the breaking up of the band. Andrea Berloff penned the script for the film, which includes Ice Cube (pictured) among the producers.
“Straight Outta Compton” also looks at the controversy surrounding the group, Easy E’s death from AIDS, the beginning of Ice Cube’s solo career, and the forming of Death Row Records.
