Chance the Rapper is at it again. According to The Fader, the Chicago multi-talent is returning to the screen in a short-form murder mystery movie called Slice about the death of a pizza delivery driver. The project, which was just announced and will apparently be released next year, will be directed by Austin Veseley​ who provided the direction for Surf's Chance-starring "Sunday Candy" video in April. (Vesely has also directed videos for Vic Mensa and singer Eryn Allen Kane.) 

Slice will be Chance's second starring role after he appeared in a 23-minute piece called Mr. Happy in March

A promotional Instagram account for Slice dates back almost a year but was just resurrected with hints of the Chance announcement earlier this week. 

UPDATE 06/25/2015: 

Director Austin Veseley just clarified that Slice is a feature film, which makes the news all the more exciting. 

Just so everybody knows, #SLICE is actually a feature-length no holds barred action-packed thrill ride, not a short film.
