Boyz N The Hood Script Pdf

Upon completion, Singleton was protective of his script, insisting that he be the one to direct the project, later explaining at a retrospective screening of the film "I wasn't going to have somebody from Idaho or Encino direct this movie."[2] He sold the script to Columbia Pictures in 1990, who greenlit the film immediately out of interest in making a film similar to the comedy-drama film Do the Right Thing (1989).

Boyz N The Hood Script Pdf

The feature-length debut for writer/director Singleton, who passed away in 2019 at the age of 51, Boyz N the Hood centers on the life of Tre Styles (Cuba Gooding Jr.), who is sent to live with his father Furious Styles (Laurence Fishburne) in South Central Los Angeles, surrounded by the neighborhood's booming gang culture. Co-starring Ice Cube, Morris Chestnut, Nia Long, Angela Bassett, and Regina King, Boyz N the Hood's title references the 1987 N.W.A. rap song of the same name, which was written by castmate Ice Cube. Singleton initially developed the film as a requirement for application to film school in 1986, and sold the script to Columbia Pictures upon his graduation in 1990. During the writing process, Singleton drew inspiration from his own life and from the lives of people he knew, and consequently insisted that he direct the project himself. Principal photography began in September of 1990, and Boyz N the Hood was filmed on location from October to November 1990.
