Ice Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr has reportedly been cast to play his dad in the long-in-production NWA biopic.

The Wrap reports that the deal for the casting has been done, though there has been no official confirmation as yet. Still, Cube, who along with Dr Dre is a producer on the project, has been pushing for his son to take the role. He told The Guardian earlier this year: “I’ve been trying to get that pushed along. Just wanna make sure that he’s the best man for the job”.

The film, in development at Universal Pictures, is currently lined up to be directed by F Gary Gray, with script by Jonathan Herman.
