Hey guys, Jana here,

23rd Annual American Music Awards

Straight Outta Compton’s success is just the beginning of a new vein for filmmakers to mine original stories from, and there is a sequel film, ‘Welcome to Death Row‘, being shopped around.


Welcome to Death Row‘ will detail the aftermath of what became of some of the primary figures in the West Coast rap scene from a book and documentary by S. Leigh Savidge who is credited with the story for ‘Straight Outta Compton‘. Some of the characters featured are Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur and Suge Knight, the legendary hip hop mogul. This film has a few stumbling blocks that Compton didn’t have to begin with, one of the biggest one being there aren’t any music rights secured for this. When Savidge brought Compton to studio, he and screenwriter Alan Wenkus coaxed the late Eazy-E’s widow and owner of all the rights to sign off the musical properties.

Right now nothing is set in stone and comes from THR, but I’d get ready for an onslaught of similar pics.With the success Compton had, it’s possible the rights may come without too much of a hitch. In the works as well is the Tupac story which covers from the early 1990s to 1996 when he died.

Movie Quotes

One more thing, we need Achilles and his Myrmidon.
Achilles? He can't be controlled. He's as likely to fight us as the Trojans.
We don't need to control him, we need to unleash him. That man was born to end lives.
Yes, he's a gifted killer. But he threatens everything I've built. Before me, Greece was nothing. I brought all the Greek kingdoms together. I created a nation out of fire worshippers and snake eaters! I build the future Nestor, Me! Achilles is the past. A man who fights for no flag. A man loyal to no country.
How many battles have we won off the edge of his sword? This will be the greatest war the world has ever seen. We need the greatest warrior.
There's only one man he'll listen to.
