King Kong vs. NWA: Compton‘s Eazy-E and Dr. Dre Head to Skull Island


I can only assume they will intimidate the big ape with their streetwise lyrics and gangster swagger. Two out of Straight Outta Compton‘s three leads, Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell will be going from Compton to Skull Island.

Variety describes Mitchell’s character as “an easy going pilot.” I think they mean an EAZY DUZ IT pilot, but regardless, that would most likely mean Skull Island is set in a more modern time period than Peter Jackson’s 1933-set version, when air travel meant biplanes and the Air Force wasn’t integrated.

It’ll never happen, but I would freak out so hard if they did a rap track called “Fuck the Gorilla” for the soundtrack.
