N.W.A. Movie

via. HipHopUpdate.

**I know some crazy shit about this movie... but Ima keep it to myself & see if it really happens.**

New Line is developing "Straight Outta Compton", an urban drama about N.W.A. (a.k.a. N*ggaz With Attitude), the hip hop group that helped pioneer the gangsta rap movement in the '80s and early '90s.

The project will chronicle the rise and fall of the rap quartet, founded by Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and MC Ren, whose songs were so incendiary (i.e. "F--- tha Police") they were banned from radio playlists but still sold millions of albums. Then came the inevitable fiery breakup, a grudge match between the former bandmates, and Eazy-E's tragic death due to AIDS.

The film's producers, which include Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Tomica Wright (Eazy-E's widow), and Circle of Confusion entertainment, are now actively searching for a director along the lines of Curtis Hanson (8 Mile).
