New Line's Shortlist Of Directors For NWA Biopic Reportedly Includes Gray, Brewer & Berg

Our last post on this was to note John Singleton’s mention in an interview with The Playlist that he had been talking with Ice Cube about possibly directing the project for New Line, though nothing was definite.

Today, Vulture adds to all the speculation, stating an insider’s claimes that New Line is actually looking at 3 other directors to helm the project: F. Gary Gray, Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), and Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights).

And to all that I say, I’m willing to buy both Gray and even Brewer, but Peter Berg? Interesting choice…

But it looks like the film is definitely moving full-speed ahead, and an official production announcement could be imminent. As Singleton said in the last post, “The script is really, really good… New Line really wants to make it.

Who would you pick to direct this, if you were studio boss?

Stay tuned…
