THR reports that writer Jonathan Herman has signed on to script the upcoming N.WA. biopic Straight Outta Compton for Universal Pictures. Ice Cube is producing the project.
The studio is now in the process of picking up the project in turnaround from New Line Cinema, which had previously been developing the film for years. F. Gary Gray is attached to direct the project, which follows the roots of the seminal rap group as well as their rise to fame. The original members of the group were Arabian Prince, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and Ice Cube, who is producing the film with his Cube Vision partner Matt Alvarez.
