See Chance the Rapper turn murder detective in a trailer for his new film

When your workplace happens to be built on a gateway to hell things get a little complicated

A trailer for a new film entitled Slice just dropped, and it has all the ingredients to be the best horror of the year: heartthrobs, pizza, and werewolves.

From what we know so far, the film will star Chance the Rapper as a delivery boy at a pizza joint that happens to be built on a gateway to hell. He’s starring alongside Stranger Things star Joe Keery and his bouffant tresses, Zazie Beetz of Atlanta and Deadpool, and comedian Paul Scheer in the project that comes from the same indie studio as Moonlight and Lady Bird.

The studio released a synopsis of the film that read: “In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Zazie and Chance) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree.” 

It is written and directed by one of Chance’s frequent collaborators Austin Veseley, who has worked on a number of his music videos.

“People ask me often if the film is really scary. I hope it has its moments but it’s more of a comedy for me. Tonally, I was really inspired by Twin Peaks, if that says anything,” Vesely told Pigeons and Planes back in 2016. “I studied Paul Thomas Anderson’s movies to figure out how to balance multiple narratives. TV shows as well, like Twin Peaks, to discover how to establish a sense of place. I guess this movie is like Magnolia with ghosts. Just kidding. Kind of.”

There is not yet a date for the release but the trailer says its “coming soon”. Watch the rest below.
