DMX just landed a new movie role.
According to HotNewHipHop, the rapper is set to star in a new crime movie, “Chronicles of a Serial Killer.”
DMX will be playing a lead detective tracking down a serial killer, with co-stars Brendan Sexton and Tara Reid.
“When my casting director suggested DMX it immediately resonated with me as a perfect fit. I have no doubt he is going bring a different dynamic to the role and I’m excited to have him part of this talented cast. I’m looking forward to working with him and everyone else this summer,“ director Steve Stanulis told HotNewHipHop.
The film begins shooting in June. DMX began his acting career in the 1998 classic, Belly. This will be his first major film role since Top Five with Chris Rock in 2014.
DMX just made an appearance at Coachella this past weekend during Kanye West’s Sunday Service. He has also been back in the studio with Swizz Beatz.
