Chance The Rapper is in talks to appear in the new Sesame Street live-action movie.
The hit US children’s TV show, which celebrated its 50th-anniversary last year, is currently being adapted for the big screen with Jonathan Krisel set to be direct. It’s due to hit cinemas on January 14, 2022.
Chance The Rapper will appear in the cast as an aide to the film’s major character.
According to reports, Chance is in negotiations with Warner Bros Studios regarding the potential role.
The plot of a remake is said to follow Sesame Street residents as they face eviction from the street. In turn, they’ll be forced to prove it really exists with the help of a history show presenter, played by Anne Hathaway.
This comes after Chance The Rapper appeared in an episode of Sesame Street last year. He featured in a segment called ‘T is for Theater’ alongside the iconic Cookie Monster muppet.
