People may be split on deciding whether Spike Lee is cool or not (although his real talk moments-to-Oldboy ratio still slightly points to the former), but everybody loves Dave Chappelle. We’ll be getting more of Chappelle soon thanks to Lee. The comedian has signed on to play a role in Chiraq. The famed creative confirmed the news with the above Instagram picture.
If you haven’t heard, Chiraq is an upcoming musical that’s focused on Chicago’s gun violence epidemic. There isn’t much other information about the film other than how Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes and John Cusack are making appearances, according to The Chicago Tribune.
This could be a mess or a satirical success. The release date is a ways away, though; filming is expected to continue through July 10.
