Fellow Chicago native Austin Vesely directs Slice, a new horror slasher that stars Chance the Rapper, with Zazie Beetz, Paul Scheer, and Will Brill (Eyes Of My Mother, “The OA”).
Slice follows a pizza delivery driver who is murdered on the job, leaving the city searching for someone to blame: ghosts? drug dealers? a disgraced werewolf?
“In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Beetz and Chance the Rapper) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree.“
“It’s a city where ghosts and humans come together; there’s a ghost town and a regular town,” producer Brett Hays said last year during filming. “It just kind pokes fun and has fun with those genres.”
The trailer reveals that Perfect Pizza is built on top of the gateway to hell and that pizza delivery men and women are being hunted. Ironically (or maybe not), the movie appears to be loaded up with double the cheese, but also looks delicious.
