Kid Cudi has been cast in Brittany Snow’s directorial debut “September 17.”
The pair collaborated on the new horror flick ‘X’ and will now work together on the ‘Pitch Perfect’ star’s debut effort behind the camera.
Cudi, whose real name is Scott Mescudi, said: “I couldn’t believe she wanted me in it. She had told me about the movie while we were on set (for ‘X’), but she didn’t ever asked me to be. I was like, ‘Maybe she’s waiting to see how (‘X’) turns out.’ It’s going to be awesome. Really great storyline.”
Brittany added, “I can’t talk too much about it, except that Scott has a role in the movie, so that’s cool.”
“September 17th” tells the story of a woman named Riley who struggles with eating and body image issues and who has just come out of rehab. She soon meets a man named Ethan and must navigate between unconditional love and a new addiction.
Snow is directing the film from a script she wrote alongside Becca Gleason. Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman are producing under their Yale Production banner with Lizzie Shapiro for her production banner The Space Program.
Brittany revealed that she spent time watching ‘X’ director Ti West at work to help guide the new project.
The 36-year-old actress told Variety, “I watched Ti (West, director of ‘X’) a lot while filming this one.
“And I think something that I learned from him that I’m going to take with me is the specificity of knowing the course of what you want, and being really loud and clear in your beliefs. on this subject.
“I love acting on set, but it lends itself very well when you know your director has a complete idea of exactly what they want. Hopefully I can live up to what everyone else has. made.”
