23 March 2022, 10:01 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Kid Cudi has revealed that he's writing, directing and starring in a new Netflix film titled Teddy, and Jay-Z is one of the producers.

Kid Cudi will make his feature directorial debut with an upcoming Netflix film titled Teddy, which Kid Cudi announced on socials yesterday (22 March).

He revealed on Instagram that it's a story he "started writing in 2013 because I always wanted to write my own movie, so I said fuck it and started doing it."

"The road has been long, from it being a tv show for years to finally being a film," Kid Cudi continued. "So it means so fuckin much to finally be able to bring it to the screen next year, and I cant wait for u all to meet Teddy, his friends, his family and take a walk in his world for a bit. If I could sum up what the movie is about in one sentence, id say this: It's as if I took the song "Pursuit of Happiness" and wrote a movie about it. I added a lot of my own personal struggles and experiences in it, so this film is very close to my heart. I know, that deep down, this movie will help people in the same ways my music has. Im continuing my mission. Now this is a comedy, but It wouldn't be me if I didn't sprinkle some real shit in there. Its trippy, its fun, its sad, its life. The film is produced by the almighty Jeymes Samuel, Shawn "Jay Z" Carter, James Lassiter, MAD SOLAR and BRON. Special shout out to the homie Tendo Nagenda and Netflix for seeing the vision!! The next chapter begins..."
