Straight Outta Compton is finally moving forward.

The N.W.A biopic has found a new home at Universal Pictures and a writer in Jonathan Heller. Who is this penman brave enough to dramatize the story of the infamous LA gangsta rap crew, you may ask?

Well, his imdb page lists only one project: the somewhat intriguingly titled short movie Firepussy. Hence it’s difficult to say if he's suited for the project. Universal and producer Ice Cube seem to think he is though and who are we to doubt ?

Andrea Berloff (World Trade Center) wrote a previous draft of the script.

Friday's , who has been attached to direct Straight Outta Compton for a long time, is still on boad.

After years and years of stalling it seems like the origin story of N.W.A is finally making it too the big screen!
