Offset is going to making his feature film acting debut!
Deadline reports that Offset will not only star in the movie, he’ll also curate and executive producer the film’s soundtrack, which will include at least one original song.
“This is my first feature film as an actor. After doing NCIS, I knew I wanted to do more acting. Landing this role in American Sole is dope. Not only do I get to star in the movie, but I get to bring my skills to the table as the curator and executive producer for the soundtrack. I’m bringing my world to the big screen. I hope the world is ready,” Offset said in a statement.
STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said, “To have Offset joining our team is a dream scenario. Offset’s character is important to the storyline and we couldn’t be more excited to have him working with us behind the scenes as he works with Ian and the team at STX to help us define the sound of this film. We could not be in better hands.”
American Sole “follows two twentysomethings (Davidson and Jackson) with mountains of college debt who use the fast cash of after-market sneaker reselling to achieve their American dream. But when their startup runs out of cash and a shady investor is their only way out, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare.”
Offset will “play a computer engineer who becomes critical to the storyline.”
