Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, who are producing the film, have not made a final presentation to the studio’s green-light committee.
It is unclear whether a go-ahead will be permitted at a meeting in May. There has been trouble in finding the leading actors.
After a series of open casting calls all over Southern California, those with casting approval have not come across anyone suitable to play young Dre, Cube and the late Eazy-E.
Among those with casting approval is Eazy’s widow, Tomica Wright.
It has been reported that Dr. Dre wanted his role to be casting by Michael B. Jordan but due to his role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in Fox’s The Fantastic Four, he isn’t available.
