Chance the Rapper will soon be known as Chance the Actor.
The Chicago MC is set to make his feature film debut with Slice. Written by Chance’s frequent collaborator Austin Vesley, the film “takes place in mysterious city, and centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys.” Production took place over the summer in Chicago, and A24 plans to release the film in the second half of 2017.
To coincide with the film’s announcement, Chance shared a quick teaser via Twitter:
Vesley previously helmed Chance’s videos for “Sunday Candy” and “Angels”. Aside from those videos, Chance’s past acting credits include a short film for VICE called Mr. Happy and a Kit-Kat commercial. However, this marks his first role in a feature film.
