Kid Cudi and Big Boi to Star in Remake of Stephen King’s ‘Creepshow’
Both artists will star in one episode each, reported Shudder on Thursday (June 20). Cudi will be in the episode “Bad Wolf Down,” along with actor Jeffery Combs. Big Boi has a role in an episode titled “The Man in the Suitcase.”
This will be a remake of the 1980s series of anthologies written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. For the updated version, Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) will serve as the series showrunner and also direct an episode, as will renowned make-up specialist and director Tom Savini, who played in the original.
The news comes on the heels of an announcement that Cudi will have a role in the upcoming Bill & Ted sequel. Both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will return to reprise their roles of the absent-minded duo in the third installment of the cult classic films. Cudi's role is unclear at this point. Bill & Ted Face the Music is expected to arrive in theaters next summer. Cudi is also expected to be putting out some new music in 2020.
Earlier this year, Big Boi landed a role as Motown founder Berry Gordy in music mogul's upcoming biopic.
