    Good news for fans of seminal rap collective NWA.

    Ice Cube is producing a biopic about his former gangsta rap group NWA, telling MTV News that the script is almost finished and now all it needs is the right director. So what about Boyz 'N the Hood director John Singleton, who worked with Cube on so many of his early films? Well, the rapper/actor said they are interviewing helmers.

    He revealed, "We're interviewing a lot of directors. I don't want to say 'ye' or 'nay,' but we're interviewing directors. The movie's in progress in this high speed, and it's coming along. Hopefully, we get it done."

    He also said, "I'm happy with the script. The script is about 75 percent there. We're waiting to hire a director and then bring it all home. It's always stumbling blocks in Hollywood. There are always ways that the movie cannot get made. Until they green-light the picture, start cutting checks, it's still just a dream."

    Ice Cube was quite the urban poet before he was a family fare actor.
