April 11, 2012

The Italian Job” helmer F. Gary Gray is in talks to direct the N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton” says The Hollywood Reporter.

N.W.A., short for Ni–az Wit Attitudes, was an influential hip hop group from Compton during the late 80’s and considered one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap scene. Cube himself was a member of the group.

Scribes Andrea Berloff, S. Leigh Savidge, Alan Wenkus and Matt Alvarez have all been linked to the project. 

Ice Cube, Tomica Wright. and Matt Alvarez are producing.

Gray beat out the likes of John Singleton George Tillman Jr. and Elgin James for the job.

Gray was also on the list as a potential helmer for Captain America 2, this would take him out of the running.
