Earlier this month Cudi teased he was “shooting a film in September” and now we officially know what it is. “Tacoma”, a low-budget feature film directed by Stewart Thorndike, has cast Kid Cudi as one of the films main characters.
The film started out as a Kick Starter campaign earlier this year in the hopes of raising enough money to start production. “Tacoma” is set to begin production in September on location in New York and Washington State for 6 weeks.
Emmy Award winning actress Patricia Clarkson has been cast as Cynthia, the films main character, with Kid Cudi cast as Yanni, her lover.
