Straight Outta Compton

The NWA biopic is happening and today Ice Cube and Dr. Dre showed off a production shot with the cast. Marcus Callender (Headshots & Breakdowns) will star as Dr. Dre, Jason Mitchell (Contraband) will play the late Eazy E, and Ice Cube‘s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. will fill in the big shoes of his father.

The film is being shot by F. Gary Gray who also appears in the production photo.

Actors looking to make your big screen début, you’re in luck. Ice Cube says they are still looking for actors to play MC Ren and DJ Yella.

The NWA biopic entitled Straight Outta Compton will hit theaters next summer, on August 14th, 2015.
