Kid Cudi‘s film career keeps growing and growing. From playing Domingo Brown in How To Make It In America in 2010, to his recent role in the A24 slasher X, to now announcing his directorial debut, Cudi’s film endeavors are nothing to brush off.
Kid Cudi’s forthcoming movie, which he’ll also be starring in, is titled Teddy. In an Instagram post, he described as if he took the song “Pursuit Of Happiness,” and wrote a movie about it. He started writing it in 2013, and after Netflix finally saw the vision (along with a line of producers that includes JAY-Z), it’s finally coming to the big screen.
He expands a bit more on the process in his social post:
This is a story I started writing in 2013 because I always wanted to write my own movie, so I said fuck it and started doing it. (MESSAGE!) The road has been long, from it being a tv show for years to finally being a film. So it means so fuckin 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.
We’ll be eagerly awaiting more details on Teddy.
