It’s been nearly two years since Chance the Rapper broke news of his starring role in Slice, a forthcoming horror movie about pizza-related murders. Now, the flick is finally set for a theatrical release — for one night only. Slice will land in 21 cities across America next Monday, September 10.
Writer and director Austin Vesely announced the screenings on Twitter, directing enthused pizza and movie lovers to the film’s official website for a complete list of cities and showtimes. The lucky locales that will get a slice of Slice are: Austin; Atlanta; Boston; Brooklyn; Charlotte; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Los Angeles; Miami Beach; Milwaukee; Nashville; Philadelphia; Portland, Oregon; Raleigh, North Carolina; San Francisco; Seattle; St. Louis; and Washington, DC.
For those in need of a memory jog, Chance the Rapper plays Dax Lycander, “a werewolf who is a former Chinese food delivery driver.” Slice is set in a “mysterious city,” and the story “centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys.” This is Chance’s acting debut. Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), Paul Scheer (Children’s Hospital), Joe Keery (Stranger Things), and comedian Hannibal Buress are also among the cast.
Information regarding a wider release from distributor A24 has not been announced. However, Birth Movies Death speculates Slice may be headed straight to video-on-demand sometime around Halloween.
