As Def Sounds previously reported, Ice Cube confirmed the forthcoming N.W.A. biopic. Now the legendary emcee says the script for the film is 75% complete and he is looking for a director at this point.
While doing the promo run for the upcoming 21 Jump Street movie, Ice Cube took some time and spoke with MTV on the N.W.A. film:
“We’re interviewing a lot of directors. I don’t want to say ‘yea’ or ‘nay,’ but we’re interviewing directors. So, the movie’s in progress in this high speed, and it’s coming along. Hopefully, we get it done.”
As Cube continued, he revealed that the script is almost done:
“[The script] is about seventy-five percent there. Until they green-light the picture, start cutting checks, it’s still just a dream.”
He explains casting for the film, while addressing rumors of casting his son:
“That’s a dream come true, but we’re going to find the best actor to do the job. That’s the thing about movies: You have got to find the best people to do the role. It is going to be a role that I think is right for unknowns, people who you haven’t seen before. I think that’s the best way to pull this off.”
