..casting sessions for the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton are starting right here in Los Angeles and will continue throughout the summer. Our sources can confirm that the character of Eazy-E will be a pivotal role in the film and early casting focus is centered around him.

While there have been rumors that Eazy-E’s real-life son, Eric Wright Jr. (Lil Eazy-E), will play his father in the film, the producers of the film and New Line Cinema are going to conduct thorough casting calls and sessions for the role as normal procedure. And who will play Ice Cube? Dr. Dre? We can confirm at this point anything you hear is purely rumors.

No official casting decisions will be made until after this summer at the earliest. In the meantime…
