Offset, a US rapper who doubles as a husband to Cardi B, an American songstress, is set to make his Hollywood debut in a forthcoming movie titled ‘American Sole’.
According to Deadline, Offset will join movie stars like Pete Davidson, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Camila Mendes in the film, which was written and will be directed by Ian Edelman, a famed screenwriter.
The STXfilms movie follows the story of two characters (Davidson and Jackson) in their 20s with lots of college debt. They “use the fast cash of after-market sneaker reselling to achieve their American dream.”
Their hustle becomes a nightmare after their startup runs out of cash with a shady investor their only way out.
Offset, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, is expected to play a computer engineer who becomes critical to the story.
In addition, he is also working with Edelman and Jason Markey, STX Music executive, as a solo artiste to curate and executive produce the ‘American Sole: The Soundtrack Album’, which will include at least one original song.
Speaking on their deal with the rapper, Adam Fogelson, the chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group, 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.”
On his part, Offset, 28, said: “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.”
