Rapper/producer Dr Dre recently posted this picture to his Twitter page with the caption that read:
“Dre & F Gary Gray – The NWA Movie kicks off the collaboration! Expect more incredible projects from this powerhouse duo”
This is a photo from the set of the N.W.A. film, which proves that F. Gary Gray has found the cast for his upcoming NWA project, Straight Outta Compton. The biopic has been talked about for quite a while but accumulated dust after being shelved for years because of unknown reasons.
Last year, rapper/actor Ice Cube said in an interview that the N.W.A. biopic was definitely happening, but he didn’t mention too much about the details. Cube did say they were looking for a director though. During that time, Who Got The Role caught up with director John Singleton, and in that interview, he mentioned that he was the man for the job. Saying, “I want to do it, Cube has to hire me first.” Ice Cube obviously thought different, the N.W.A. film has director Gray attached.
After Cube hired Gray, he immediately launched an open casting call for the film on the internet. The names of the actors who were selected have yet to be released.
Gray’s last film was in 2009, where he directed Law Abiding Citizen.
More details on the unknown cast for Straight Outta Compton coming soon…
