John Singleton Speaks On N.W.A. Film!

A few years back it was announced that Ice Cube was set to produce a film based on his days with the "Worlds Most Dangerous Group", N.W.A. Writers Andrea Berloff, S. Leigh Savidge, Alan Wenkus, and Matt Alvarez have all been involved with the screenplay but other than that news has been quiet on the project, that is until now. In an interview with The Playlist while promoting Abduction, John Singleton has said that he has been approached by Ice Cube to direct.
"I can't talk about it too prematurely about the stuff I'm doing because nothing has come to fruition yet, but Cube and I are talking about doing the N.W.A. story. The script is really, really good and so we're just figuring it out. New Line really wants to make it".
The project is also said to have the blessing of Eazy E's widow, Tomica Wright. She is also a producer on the project alongside Ice Cube. At this point I can't think of a better director for this film. Not just because of his past experience with "hood" movies but his friendship and long standing working relationship with Ice Cube make him the perfect candidate. What do you kids think?
