Rapper Kid Cudi is set to make his feature directorial debut with the new Netflix film Teddy, a project in which he’ll also star.
The musician made the announcement in a lengthy social media post on his Instagram on Tuesday, revealing he’d been working on the project since 2013.
“I always wanted to write my own movie, so I said f*ck it and started doing it. The road has been long, from it being a tv show for years to finally being a film,” Cudi wrote.
“So it means so f*ckin much to finally be able to bring it to the screen next year, and I cant wait for u all to meet Teddy, his friends, his family and take a walk in his world for a bit,” he added.
Cudi went on to explain the premise of the movie, teasing that if he could sum it up in one sentence that, “It’s as if I took the song ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ [his hit 2009 track] and wrote a movie about it.”
