In 2009, Ice Cube announced plans to produce an N.W.A. biopic titled Straight Outta Compton. "I'm excited," he said in 2012 about it's progress. "A lot of it is about the pre-production of the movie since it's a period film. Even though it's just the '80s, you gotta make sure that we have the flavor. But it's full steam ahead."
