Kid Cudi regisserar och skådespelar i Netflix ’Teddy’

Långfilmen kommer till Netflix nästa år

Nyligen syntes Kid Cudi skådespela i A24's skräckfilm X, som karaktären Jackson Hole. Nu meddelar han att han snart är tillbaka på filmduken igen. Han har nämligen regisserat, samt ska skådespelar, i Netflix kommande Teddy.

Han gick ut med nyheten på sina sociala medier igår. Filmen Teddy ska vara ett projekt som han jobbat på i nästan 10 år. För produktionen står Jeymes Samuel, JAY-Z, Mad Solar och Bron. Såhär berättar Cudi själv om filmen:

“Ok. I've been waitin to tell you all about this for a long time.  This year I'm directing my first feature film "Teddy"  at Netflix which I wrote and will also be starring. This is a story I started writing in 2013 because I always wanted to write my own movie, so I said f*** it and started doing it. The road has been long, from it being a tv show for years to finally being a film. So it means so f***** much to finally be able to bring it to the screen next year, and I cant wait for u all to meet Teddy, his friends, his family and take a walk in his world for a bit. If I could sum up what the movie is about in one sentence, I’d say this: It’s as if I took the song ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ and wrote a movie about it. I added a lot of my own personal struggles and experiences in it, so this film is very close to my heart. I know, that deep down, this movie will help people in the same ways my music has. I’m continuing my mission. Now this is a comedy, but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t sprinkle some real shit in there. It’s trippy, it’s fun, it’s sad, it’s life.”

Ännu finns inget officiellt releasedatum för Teddy, men Kid Cudi menar att den ska komma någon gång under 2023.
