Kid Cudi to make directorial debut and star in upcoming Netflix film, ‘Teddy’
(NOTE LANGUAGE) Scott Ramon Mescudi, better known as Kid Cudi, penned a lengthy Instagram note on Tuesday to announce his upcoming Netflix film, Teddy.
The film will mark the musician’s directorial debut and is “very close” to his heart after being nine years in the making.
“The road has been long, from it being a tv show for years to finally being a film. So it means so f****** 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,” Cudi said.
Cudi adds that if he could paraphrase the movie’s plot, “It’s as if I took the song ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ and wrote a movie about it.”
The “Day ‘n’ Nite” rapper explained how important the film is to him, including the fact that it will feature some of his own personal struggles and experiences.
“I know, that deep down, this movie will help people in the same ways my music has. I’m continuing my mission,” said Cudi.
The Harder They Fall director Jeymes Samuel is set to produce Teddy alongside Jay-Z and others.
