N.W.A. fans will be happy to find out that the group is finally getting a movie and Universal Pictures has hired Jonathan Herman to start writing the script.

Scripts have been written in the past for the film which will be entitled, Straight Outta Compton, but the latest draft seems like it has a very serious chance of getting set into production. According to reports, the Universal Pictures is in the process of picking up the title of the movie from New Line, who had been in the process of developing it for years. Ice Cube is producing the film with Matt Alvarez and his production company Cube Vision and Will Packer will be executive producing the biopic.

Jonathan Herman has been very busy as of late, he wrote the remake to Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds along with an hacker film that is being produced by Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg.

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
