I swear we've been hearing about this movie for a while. There will be an N.W.A. biopic in the works, but this time, it really is because the movie just found it's writer. Universal Pictures is moving forward with "Straight Outta Compton," also the name of of their 1988 album, by naming Jonathan Herman to write the latest draft. Plus, F. Gary Gray is attached to helm the project, according to Billboard. Of course the movie will trace the roots of the group and their rise, and most likely, their fall (for some of the members). By the way, Ice Cube is producing the film.
