Chance the Rapper is following a number of musicians who have turned their talents to acting. He is set to feature in Slice, the debut feature of writer-director Austin Vesely.
Cast in the film in June 2015, the film's IMDB page described the plot of synopsis: "When a pizza delivery driver is murdered on the job, the city searches for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf?" Also around that time it was announced that Chance would serve as a producer on the film as well as starring in it.
Produced by A24, the indie film studio that also made Room, Ex Machina and this year's Oscar hopeful Moonlight, Slice is already associated with some classy output.
Slice does not represent the rapper's silver screen debut, he previously starred in a short film called Mr Happy, which was released in 2015. In that movie he played a character stuck in a dead end job and struggling with depression.
Chance shared the teaser trailer for his new movie via his Twitter account. It tells no more of the plot or characters than previously shared, but it does an excellent job in relaying a strong aesthetic and building further anticipation for a movie that many will be eager to see.
