    New Line Cinema is developing Straight Outta Compton, an urban drama about N.W.A. (a.k.a. #@%!+! With Attitude), the hip hop group that helped pioneer thegangsta rap movement in the '80s and early '90s.

    The project will chronicle the rise and fall of the rap quartet, founded by Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and MC Ren, whose songs were so incendiary (i.e."F--- tha Police") they were banned from radio playlists but still sold millions of albums.

    Then came the inevitable fiery breakup, a grudge match between the former bandmates, and Eazy-E's tragic death due to AIDS.

    The film's producers, which include Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, and Tomica Wright (Eazy-E's widow), and Circle of Confusion Entertainment, are now activelysearching for a director along the lines of Curtis Hanson (8 Mile).

    Thank goodness Dre and Cube are involved. Sounds promising...

    Until I see who's directing, I can't get my hopes up. I feel like most movies based on Rappers are half-assed.
