Kid Cudi is set to produce and star in the film adaptation of Brandon Taylor’s semi-autobiographical novel, Real Life.

According to reports, Cudi will be developing the upcoming project via his newly-launched Mad Solar banner, with Bron Studios acquiring the rights to the book. Real Life marks Taylor’s novel debut and follows the story of Wallace, an “introverted, queer, Black scientist in a predominantly white, Midwestern PhD program as he navigates complex friendships, romantic relationships, betrayals and mercies, all over the course of one weekend.”

Producing alongside the artist is Kevin Turen of Bron, while the studio’s chairman Aaron L. Gilbert will executive produce.

News of the project arrives just before Cudi is scheduled to release his highly-anticipated album, Man On The Moon III: The Chosen. The 18-track project will feature appearances from the late Pop Smoke, Skepta, Trippie Redd and Phoebe Bridgers, and will officially drop on December 11.

In other entertainment news, Alfred Molina will be reprising his role as Doc Ock in Marvel’s Spider-Man 3 for the first time in a decade.
