Former N.W.A member Ice Cube has revealed the official release date for the upcoming N.W.A biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton.’

The rapper and actor stated that the film is expected to hit cinemas on August 14, 2015.

Ice Cube will be portrayed in the film by his son O’She Jackson Jr, whilst Dr Dre will be played by Marcus Callender and Jason Mitchell will assume the role of Eazy-E.

However, Ice Cube has also sent out a tweet since his initial message on a release date and confirmed that they are still looking for actors to fill in the roles of the final two members, DJ Yella and MC Ren.   

The upcoming biopic shares the same namesake as the hip-hop group’s debut album, which became infamous for the controversy created by the first single released in 1988, “F**k tha Police.”

Straight Outta Compton will be directed by F. Gary Gray and is expected to hit cinemas August 14, 2015.
