Chance the Rapper to Make Feature Film Debut in 'Slice'
Chance the Rapper is becoming Chance the Actor. The Chicago MC is set to make his feature film debut in the upcoming A24 film Slice.
Shot over the summer in Chicago, the film “takes place in a mysterious city, and centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s unclear what role the Coloring Book star will play, but in a mysterious trailer released on Twitter, he can be seen riding a motorcycle.

Slice was written by Austin Vesely, who’s worked with Chano on a series of projects, including the music videos for “Angels” and “No Problem.”
Chance is no stranger to acting. Last year, he teamed up with VICE for the short film Mr. Happy. But Slice, due in theaters in the second half of next year, will be his first full-length film. For now, watch the trailer above and check out Chance in Mr. Happy below.
