It has been revealed that Chance the Rapper and Warner Bros. are currently working out a deal that would have him star in the live-action rendition of Sesame Street. If the deal goes as planned, Chance will take on the role as the mayor’s aide. The musical is already set to star Anne Hathaway and will be directed by Jonathan Krisel.
According to Variety, the film follows the famous Sesame Street characters after they get kicked out of their own neighborhood, forcing them to prove that it exists to the naysayers. The movie will make its way to theaters on January 15th, 2021.
This latest role will find Chance the Rapper exploring his film side yet again. He appeared in the horror-comedy Slice, as well as his cameo in Netflix’s Between Two Ferns: The Movie.
