Fans of Chance The Rapper have long awaited his first real entrance into acting, by way of a much-discussed pizza murder mystery now known as Slice. The project was directed by Austin Vesely, who had previously worked with Chance on the “Sunday Candy” music video. Now the Chicago emcee is serving up the first trailer for the upcoming film. The trailer for Slice comes as a rendition of a viral video currently making rounds, “Line Rider – Mountain King” scored by Edvard Grieg’s “In The Hall Of The Mountain King” wherein a scooter-sporting stick figure man navigates an insanely intricate sonic doodle thrill ride.
Quick frames from the film appear in the trailer, giving little away concerning any sort of plot or narrative details, though pointing to a project that’s likely to be somewhere between spooky and perhaps a little cheesy. However, albeit short and vague, the sneak peek trailer reveals some endearing “Thriller” callbacks in the new Chance-starring feature, expected the land early next year.
