André 3000 lands starring role in upcoming sci-fi flick
The iconic rapper’s character will be sent to space.
Earlier this year, fans went through the various stages of denial when André 3000 revealed that he now views rap music as more of a hobby to him.
While the 42-year-old has built a reputation for himself as both an iconic emcee and an actor over the years, news that he just landed a starring role in a new sci-fi film further showcases the reality that the OutKast visionary is continuing his transition away from hip-hop.
As reported, 3 Stacks will be co-starring in a new movie titled High Life alongside Robert Pattinson, Mia Goth, Lars Eidinger and Juliette Binoche. According to Variety, the film revolves around convicted criminals who are offered a reduced sentence if they embark on a dangerous mission to a black hole in order to help discover a new energy source.
André 3000 has starred in a handful of movies and TV shows over the years, including the Jimmy Hendrix biopic Jimi: All Is by My Side, Four Brothers, Semi-Pro, Charlotte’s Web (as a voice actor), Battle in Seattle and more, most often acting under his government name André Benjamin.
The film, which doubles as acclaimed French director Claire Denis’ English-language feature film debut, is currently filming, with the project yet to reveal a tentative release date.
