Migos member Quavo has joined the cast of Randall Emmett’s upcoming film Wash Me In The River, starring alongside Robert DeNiro, John Malkovich and Jack Huston.

The thriller follows a recovering opioid addict who seeks revenge on the dealer responsible for selling the drugs that resulted in the death of his fiancé. Quavo is set to play the role of the dealer, known as Coyote, who is billed as “a ruthless and heartless drug lord.”

“I honestly think this movie is going to be one of the greatest to come of this time. The experience was unbelievable for me with Robert Deniro and Jack Huston being so down to earth and making me feel like family. Gonna see me doing some stunts and a lot of what you hear from me in my raps!” the GRAMMY nominee said in a statement. “This is one of my biggest debuts I’ve ever had and so proud of what we did and to get to work with Randall who’s such an amazing guy— I can’t wait to do more films with him.”

Emmett added, “Quavo is a superstar and a real actor. Getting to see him bring the Coyote character to life is very exciting, and I think he is going to have a film career equally as big as his music.”

Wash Me In The River marks Quavo’s feature film debut following appearances in scripted TV shows, including Netflix’s Narcos, ABC’s Black-ish, FOX’s Star and FX’s Atlanta.

Stay tuned for a trailer and release date.
