Introducing Dax Lycander who, according to the Hollywood Reporter is “an enigmatic outlaw framed for a killing spree that targets unsuspecting pizza delivery boys.”
Slice is produced by A24, who is responsible for award-winning films such as Room, Ex Machina, and The Lobster. We’re left with a 19-second snippet of the upcoming production from Chance’s Twitter feed, and though there’s not much to take from it, you can’t deny the adrenaline rush from the Austin Vesely directed movie.

Vesely is known for directing Chance the Rapper and The Social Experiement’s video to “Sunday Candy” from their 2015 project Surf.
The 4-minute video gained positive criticism for it’s successful single stage performance that included well thought out videography and choreography. So imagine what more Vesely can do with Chance on a full length film.
At this time there is no set release date for Slice, but A24 expects to release the film in the latter half of 2017.
