Chance The Rapper to star in new film about murdered pizza delivery driver

Chance The Rapper will also serve as a producer on the band, which is titled 'Slice'

Chance The Rapper has signed up to star in Slice, a forthcoming film about a murdered pizza delivery driver.

Slice is the debut feature film from writer-director Austin Vesely. The film’s IMDB page lists its plot synopsis as follows: “When a pizza delivery driver is murdered on the job, the city searches for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf?”

Chance The Rapper’s casting was announced earlier today (June 26) on the film’s Instagram account, @slice, with the rapper being billed under his birth name, Chance Bennett. He will also serve as a producer on the film alongside Vesely. Further casting has yet to be announced.

Chance The Rapper previously starred in a short film called Mr Happy, released earlier this year (2015), in which he played a character struggling with depression and feelings of being trapped in his dead end job.

Last month (May) Chance The Rapper released a free album called ‘Surf’, billed as a release by his touring band Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment. He has since revealed that the album has already been downloaded over 600,000 times.
