From USA Today:

The N.W.A. biopic has finally found its cast. Univeral announced that Ice Cube will be played by his son, O’Shea Jackson, Jr.; Corey Hawkins will star as Dre; and Eazy will be played by Jason Mitchell.


Straight Outta Compton will be set in Compton in the mid-’80s. Universal has also announced that the film is scheduled to hit theaters Aug. 14, 2015.

It’s categorically sort of like Pirates of Silicon Valley or Jobs if you think about it considering Dr. Dre is now an Apple employee.
