Over the summer of 2016, Chance The Rapper took part in the filming of an upcoming horror movie titled Slice. The details of the movie, which is produced by the indie film company A24, has been mostly kept under wraps up until now. Thankfully, the first teaser trailer was appropriately released on Tuesday morning, just in time for Halloween, and gives horror film and hip-hop fans a small but entertaining glimpse at Chance’s big screen debut.
As Indie Wire reports, the short, new trailer doesn’t really feature any footage from the actual film. It does, however, offer a quick shot of Chance’s handsome mug, along with a handful of other frightened faces starting around the 0:30 second mark seen in the video above. According to the report, the film’s story will follow “an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys.”
In addition to Chance’s involvement in Slice, the film will also star Atlanta actress Zazie Beetz and The League’s Paul Scheer. It was written and directed by Austin Vesely, who Chance fans may remember from his work on “Sunday Candy,” a short film/music video for the song released by the rapper’s previous collaborative project in Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment. The 2015 music video can also be watched below.
The arrival of the first trailer on Tuesday didn’t come with a release date, but one can only assume that it should be as entertaining as one of Chance’s trademark concerts.
A24 has also had a part in producing or distributing a handful of highly acclaimed films in recent years. The indie studio took home an Academy Award for 2015’s Amy documentary about the late singer, and Moonlight, which took home the Oscar for “Best Picture” in 2017.
