LOS ANGELES, July 23 (UPI) -- Eminem could join Dr. Dre and Ice Cube as an honorary member of N.W.A for an upcoming reunion tour.

The "Lose Yourself" singer is already scheduled to be heard in the soundtrack for the film. According to Universal Chief Donna Langley, the famous duo from Compton and the Detroit rapper may join forces for a European tour to promote the new bio-pic Straight Outta Compton.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Langely said: "We don't have anything settled yet with everyone's schedules, but we think it can create a lot of buzz."

The film already garnered a lot of buzz back in January, while filming a trailer for the movie, rapper Suge Knight got into an argument with technical adviser, Cle "Bone" Sloan and deliberately ran him over as well as Terry Carter, a former business associate of Cube. Sloan was taken to the hospital and was eventually recuperated but Carter died at the scene.

"I was there. But I was just leaving, so I didn't know what happened until I was halfway home," Dre said. "I heard about it over the phone. Everybody was supportive everywhere we went, and we didn't have one issue throughout the entire filming of the movie. It's crazy that this happened during the f—ing filming of the commercial."

Cube added, "It's the dangerous part of living in South Central. Some people don't care if you're making a movie or not. It's unfortunate because the movie is so good, so creative, so many talented people involved."

Straight Outta Compton opens in theaters August 14.
