As hip-hop artists Master P and Lil' Romeo had signed into a horror film "The Pig People", it is now reported that another notable rapper DMX has been tapped to star in another thriller project "The Bleeding". Variety reported that the East Coast rapper will be joining the eclectic cast for the vampire-genre film.
The "Touch It" hitmaker will be polishing his acting skills alongside Vinnie Jones, Michael Matthias, Michael Madsen and Armand Assante as well as William McNamara, Pittsburgh Slim, Rachelle Leah and tattoo artist Kat Von D. Still, it has yet to be known what character the 37-year-old will be portraying despite the signing-in reports.
"Bleeding" will have Charlie Picerni as the movie director. It tells the story of an ex-Army Ranger seeking to find his parents killer. However, along the way he stumbles into a vampire-family who lives in a former chemical weapons factory-turned-nightclub. The shooting for the film is set to begin sometime in April 2008 in North Carolina.
Though famous for his musical talent, DMX has appeared in several feature films. Previously, he has showcased his acting skills alongside Jet Li in "Romeo Must Die" as well as "Cradle 2 the Grave". He also headlined 2004 crime thriller "Never Die Alone" with David Arquette.
