According to The Hollywood Reporter, Shoalin Island rapper Method Man—who last made headlines when he was arrested for owing the IRS $33,000—is set to star in something called The Mortician. There’s very little information available regarding the film, but it’s apparently a 3D movie being written and directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts about growing up in the ghetto. IMDb claims it will be a thriller shot in Louisiana slated for release in 2010, and did I mention it’s going to be in 3D?
Given the most frequently recurring motifs in Meth’s music and his various screen roles to date, I think we know what to expect from The Mortician: 3D bongs, 3D joints and 3D gunfights. I hope he really gets into the role and grows back the dreadlocks he wore at the beginning of his career. Also, the choppy fronts he’s wearing in the image at right. Now that would be thrilling in 3D! (HipHopWired)
