John Singleton Collaborating with Ice Cube for N.W.A. Biopic

It’s been six years since John Singleton has directed a movie, returning with the Taylor Lautner action-thriller Abduction this week. Since being booted out of the Akira director’s chair, Singleton is currently in works on another potential project - reuniting with his Boyz in the Hood star Ice Cube to direct a biopic on the iconic ‘80s gangsta rap group N.W.A.

According to Singleton, "The script is really, really good and so we’re figuring it out. New Line really wants to make it."
 
Currently, four writers are attached to the project. Matt Alvarez is a frequent Cube collaborator, having penned both Barbershop movies as well as Next Friday and (shudder) Are We There Yet. S. Leigh Savidge is known more for this producing work including this year’s Beibermania and 2001’s Welcome to Death Row documentaries. Rounding out the writing crew are Andrea Berloff (World Trade Center) and Alan Wenkus (whose only credit is the 1985 Johnny Depp-Rob Lowe comedy Private Resort).
 
Ice Cube had mentioned the biopic potential back in 2009 but nothing had happened until now. With Singleton now in collaboration with Cube, are you interested in seeing an N.W.A. biopic?
 
Oh, and the title? Straight out of Compton, of course.
