As Quavo is set to make his feature film debut alongside Robert De Niro, John Malkovich and Jack Huston in the upcoming movie Wash Me in the River, he shared a little more info on his character and the experience of working with De Niro.
In a recent interview, the Migos member explained that he spent a month filming his scenes in Puerto Rico. ”I’m a ruthless gangster, ruthless killer named Coyote. It’s just an honor to be on the screen with Robert De Niro, Jack Huston and John Malkovich. I’m just blessed and I can’t wait for y’all to see it,” Quavo said. “It’s a very action-packed movie. I had fun doing it. I stayed in Puerto Rico shooting for a whole month grinding. There was some long film days. Them film days are different. It’s like you’re shooting a video all day.”
He continued to call De Niro “a nice dude” and revealed that the veteran actor was actually familiar with Quavo’s musical work and Migos. “I said what’s up to him. I told him I said a line in one of my new songs about the trip I just took, and he was just like, ‘For real. M-I-G-O-S, right?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, he’s finna go home and look me up,” he said, adding, “It was too hard. I couldn’t wait to tell my Mom dukes that I’m gonna be on the screen and kicked it with him. He’s a nice dude.”
Wash Me in the River will follow a recovering opioid addict who seeks revenge on the dealer responsible for selling the drugs that resulted in the death of his fiancé. Quavo expressed his excitement in his involvement in a previous statement, “I honestly think this movie is going to be one of the greatest to come of this time. The experience was unbelievable for me with Robert Deniro and Jack Huston being so down to earth and making me feel like family. Gonna see me doing some stunts and a lot of what you hear from me in my raps! This is one of my biggest debuts I’ve ever had and so proud of what we did and to get to work with Randall [Emmett] who’s such an amazing guy— I can’t wait to do more films with him.”
