According to Variety, Dre is set to co-produce the horror thriller “Thaw” for the Crucial Films movie banner. The script for the film will be written by Vik Weet, with a story focusing on an “ancient evil that emerges from the rapidly melting ice in the Yukon.”
Dre is no stranger to the movie business, with a résumé that includes acting appearances in the 1996 heist flick “Set It Off,” as well as turns in the comedy “The Wash” and cop drama “Training Day.” He announced a deal in 2007 to team with New Line Cinema’s Crucial Films to produce a series of dark comedies and horror films and “Thaw” would be the first effort under that compact.
And, of course, Dre is also still working on his long-promised Detox album. Rick Ross recently told MTV News that he had joined the likes of Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Nas as a contributor to the top secret project. – MTV
