CS Video: Ice Cube Explains How Filming Straight Outta Compton was Like Back to the Future


Although it’s a pretty safe bet that audiences aren’t going to find a science fiction slant when they’re watching the upcoming N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, being on set making the film sure felt like being in Back in the Future, producer Ice Cube tells us.

ComingSoon.net had the chance to speak with the creative multihyphenate at the junket for his latest film, The Book of Life. You can check out his thoughts on voicing the animated Candle Maker (along with insights from the rest of the film’s cast) right here and, in the player below, watch as Ice Cube explains the importance of doing family films now and then and details the efforts he went to to prevent a temporal paradox!

In Straight Outta Compton, hitting theaters August 14, 2015, Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., plays his father opposite Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Aldis Hodge, Neil Brown Jr. and Paul Giamatti, telling the true story of N.W.A.’s meteoric rise and fall. The Book of Life, meanwhile, is in theaters now.
