Chance The Rapper Previews New Film, ‘Slice’
Chicago’s golden boy Chance The Rapper is showing us that he can do more than just make music and sell out baseball stadiums. The emcee is taking a chance at being on the big screen with a new film, Slice, which is set to be released in 2017.
The film is produced by A24, the studio behind Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight, and was secretly shot in Chicago over the summer. In what seems to be a light-hearted thriller, Slice is inspired by a novella called “CivilWarLand In Bad Decline,” and includes supernatural elements that could be mistaken for reality.
Chance plays Dax Lycander, a disgraced werewolf and former Chinese food delivery boy. In a mysterious town, Dax becomes a prime suspect when the town is put on high-alert as pizza delivery boys are being murdered one by one.
This will be Chance’s first starring role in a feature film. However, this won’t be his first time as an actor. Recently, Chance also appeared in a commercial for the popular Kit Kat brand.
We will keep an eye out for the official trailer of Slice, but in the meantime, check out this teaser trailer that was shared on Lil Chano’s Twitter profile:
