First Brief Teaser for A24's 'Slice' Movie Starring Chance The Rapper
Pizza delivery for Chance The Rapper! A24 has announced that they'll be releasing a movie in the second half of 2017 titled Slice, an indie comedy about a killer taking out pizza deliver guys. The film stars mixtape master Chance The Rapper (aka Chance Bennett) and was already filmed "quietly" in Chicago over the summer, though it won't be out until next year. The IMDb listing doesn't even mention Chance, even though he's named on the stylish teaser poster seen below. According to IMDb, the rest of the cast includes Will Brill and Rae Gray. This sounds like it's going to be very fun, a comedy about pizza delivery drivers trying to stay alive and figure out who wants to get rid of all of them. The teaser is short, but at least it's something.
Here's the first teaser footage (+ a poster) for Austin Vesely's Slice, direct from A24's Twitter:
When a pizza delivery driver is murdered on the job, the city searches for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf? Slice is both written and directed by Chicago-based filmmaker Austin Vesely, making his feature directorial debut after working on some of Chance The Rapper's music videos and a short film. He's also shooting a horror film next titled Kingfisher. THR says the film was "quietly shot over the summer in Chicago" and "takes place in a mysterious city, and centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys." A24 will release Slice in theaters in the second half of 2017, though no exact date is set yet. Follow them @A24. Stay tuned for news. Thoughts?
