NWA biopic adds directors to shortlist

We heard last week that Ice Cube had been talking with BOYZ IN THE HOOD director John Singleton about reuniting for an NWA biopic, of which Mr. Cube is a former member.

But today Vulture says the project might be moving forward without Singleton, and that three other names are being considered. That would be HUSTLE AND FLOW's Craig Brewer, FRIDAY's F. Gary Gray and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHT's Peter Berg. Hmm, which one of these things is not like the other?

Why not Singleton? The article doesn't say, but Gray would still be reuniting Ice Cube with a director he knows, though it's said to be Brewer that's expressed the strongest interest.

Out of these options, who do you think would be the best fit to tell the story of the rap group?

Extra Tidbit: Wait, so is Ice Cube playing himself?

Craig Brewer. He may be a southern boy, but the man has a gift when it comes to music-themed movies. I'll bet he wouldn't be inspiring as much ire if "Footloose" didn't have a signature song that has yet to appear in the marketing. Anyway, Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan are both excellent, and shit, the man's worked with Singleton, too.

Singleton really sucks. Boyz in the Hood was good when it came out but it doesn't really hold up. I say Brewer or Gray would be better choices for sure.

Why not Singleton? See the RT score of his latest movie, "Abduction."

Brewer all the way, I'm kinda glad Singleton isn't doing it, he really hasn't done anything worthwhile in a long time....

Brewer seems like the obvious best choice. Then Gray. However it's strange that Singleton isn't directing. And no reason given. Hmmm.
