Drake in Talks to Star in New Al Pacino Movie

Drake is in talks to star in a new film with Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon called Arbitrage, reports thewrap.com

While the Canadian rap sensation’s publicist declined to confirm that the deal has been finalized, she said: “Drake has been reading for various roles and projects.”

According to imdb.com, the Nicholas Jarecki directed thriller follows the story of a hedge fund mogul determined to sell his shady firm before his fraud is uncovered. The movie is set to go into production this March.

Drizzy started his career as the wheelchair-bound basketball star Jimmy Brooks on the popular TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation. He also had a minor role in the 2007 comedy Charlie Bartlett.

The Young Money star is currently hard at work on his sophomore album, Take Care.  —Henry Adaso
