Cruising into theaters on August 14, 2015, Universal Pictures has just revealed the release date for the highly-anticipated biopic #StraightOuttaCompton.

Earlier, we told youabout Ice Cube's son, O'Shea Jackson Jr. signing on to play him and now we have an official cast photo featuring other cast members.

In the first photo of the cast, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Jason Mitchell and Corey Hawkins star as Ice Cube, Eazy-E and Dr. Dre.

The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off,) and produced by original N.W.A. members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, and Eazy E's widow Tomica Woods-Wright. Will Packer serves as executive producer.  Here's the synopsis:

"In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war."

Congrats to the cast!   We're here for this.
