A24 just hit us with a big surprise.
The company most recently behind such great films as “Moonlight,” “American Honey,” and “Swiss Army Man” has announced that they have been secretly producing a film starring Chance The Rapper.
The movie was secretly shot in Chicago, and according to A24 “takes place in mysterious city, and centers around an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys.”

Were not sure if that description means were getting a drama, or a comedy, or something in between. But Austin Vesley wrote and directed the film, which is a good sign since he’s Chance’s long-time music video collaborator.
And by any means, we trust A24.
We’re talking about THE premiere indie distributor. Their roster of films is unreal, it seems every time a film from Sundance is up for an Academy Award, it was A24 that brought them there. It may be the only company that can convince this writer to watch a film based on the distributor alone.
So if they think it’s gonna be good, we’ll stand right by that.
