New NWA biopic trailer revealed
It’s been two and half years since I posted a short blog detailing open auditions for the forthcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. It looks like the whole project has been trapped in some kind of post-production hiatus for ages – whether this is down to legal stuff or the quality of the end product is unclear, but I’m sure we’ll find out why given time.
For those interested in Straight Outta Compton, it looks like it’s finally ready to see the light of day. One of the film’s executive producers (along with fellow former member, Dr Dre) Ice Cube recently revealed a trailer during a show in Sydney, meaning it can’t be long until something a bit more official pops up.
The film is directed by F. Gary Gray and stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell – with Paul Giamatti playing Jerry Heller, the group’s manager. The trailer below is taken from fan footage at the recent gig so it’s not the best, but it gives you a rough dea of what to expect – check it out below:
