Chance the Rapper will make his feature film debut in A24's Slice movie, the same production company behind critically-acclaimed projects American Honey and Moonlight. The artist announced the news on Twitter, sharing a teaser with his fans where he revs up his motorcycle.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Slice "centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys." Chance is set to play a werewolf in the murder film. He secretly shot the movie in Chicago over the summer alongside collaborator Austin Vesely, who is making his big-screen directorial debut. He's the man behind the rapper's "Sunday Candy" and "Angels" videos.
Slice will be released in theaters in the second half of 2017. Chance's role follows his appearance in Vice's 2015 short, Mr. Happy.
