(BlackMediaScoop) Yes, its really happening folks, with F. Gary Gray directing – the NWA biopic project, Straight Outta Compton is in the works!
We toldya several months ago Ice Cube said that it was definitely happening, but he didn’t reveal much detail. He did say they were on the hunt for a director. But the project has obviously found its guy in Gray.
F. Gary Gray’s last big screen project was in 2009 with Law Abiding Citizen. Since then he’s been attached to helm 3 or more different projects, and none has materialized; would be great to see him back at work again.
Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez are producing the NWA project via Cube Vision, along with Eazy-E’s widow, Tomica Woods.
