Casting selected for Ice Cube, Eazy- E, and Dr. Dre in N.W.A. biopic

It IS happening. Progression has been made from my April post on the Suge Knight casting selection. Above you see a picture of Ice Cube, Director Gary F. Gray, and Dr. Dre. Kneeled in front of them are the casting selections for the following (L to R):
O'Shea Jackson Jr. -Ice Cube's son will be playing the role of his father
Jason Mitchell as Eazy - E
Marcus Callendar as Dr. Dre.

Cube tweeted this week that the movie will be hitting theaters 8/14/15. NYDailyNews reports this WAS the same date of the latest installment of the Bourne series. However, Universal Studios bumped

that release date to July 15, 2016 in order for #StraightOuttaCompton to take the slot. That's major. Cube, also, tweeted that they are currently still looking for casting on the roles of MC Ren and DJ Yella. Hopefully, that will be determined soon.

"This is our legacy.. you can't play with this.. there's no cutting corners. .....I'm totally involved."- Ice Cube to MTV news.
