Kid Cudi is no stranger to the big screen, dabbling across a handful of production roles in titles including his own Entergalactic, among others such as A24‘s recent thrillers X and Pearl. Cudi is now readying for the release of his animated horror film Slime, which sees the musician take a starring role alongside animator Jeron Braxton, who will be making his feature directorial debut on the project.

While details remain scarce at the moment, a press release describes the film as “a sonic/visual experience that marries Braxton’s distinct style with a trippy, elevating original soundtrack.”

“I’m always looking for what’s new and always trying to elevate what we know about music, film, TV and animation,” Cudi shared in a statement to Deadline. “Jeron is a powerhouse creative at the forefront of culture, pushing boundaries with everything he does. I’m grateful to have him on the team and am ready to see him bring Slime to life. Mad Solar, we here.”

Cudi, as part of his Mad Solar production banner, serves as a producer on Slime, alongside Hammerstone Studios.

“I’m extremely excited to bring Slime to life and super appreciative to everyone around me who helped make this possible,” shared Braxton. “Animation has always been an opportunity for me to shift perspective on issues affecting Americans and more explicitly the black diaspora, and now we can use the genre of horror and cutting-edge technology to create an insane evolution for the medium.”

Stay tuned to Hypebeast for more updates on Slime as they surface.
