After the production-hell delays on biopics about Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix, it is kind of a relief to hear that the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton is right on schedule and has the full support of Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. And now, the film’s main cast has been announced. Ice Cube will be played by his son O’Shea Jackson Jr., Eazy-E will be played by relative unknown Jason Mitchell, and Dre will be played by Corey Hawkins, who played Tybalt in this year’s Broadway production of Romeo And Juliet. Above you can find the first press photo they’ve taken for the film. Straight Outta Compton is expected to come out next year.
