In an interview with MTV, the rap legend says the script is being “fine-tuned” and casting is set to begin this week.
“We’re putting it together. We got a great director, F. Gary Grey, great producers (points to himself). We’re just trying to tell the story of the world’s most dangerous group,” Cube explained. “We’re trying to tell aspects of our lives that people don’t know about, people aren’t privy to.”
He later explained how the group — comprised of Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren and Dr. Dre — were influenced by their environment. “The neighborhood influenced N.W.A., and then N.W.A. influenced the neighborhood. That’s what we’re trying to portray.” he said
