N.W.A. Biopic Coming August 2015

Straight Outta Compton

After years of anticipation, it’s official: the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton will finally see the light of day in August 2015.

The story of the World’s Most Dangerous group will begin on-screen in the mid-1980’s on the streets of Compton, California, that were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation.

Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

They will also be joined by fellow producers Matt Alvarez and Tomica Woods-Wright; Will Packer will executive produce alongside Gray.

Straight Outta Compton will be released on August 14, 2015.
