Kelly discussed how Drake almost cast himself on the Audacy Check In series with his colleague Mod Sun. Kelly co-wrote, directed and stars in the stoner comedy alongside fellow artist Mod Sun, fiancé Megan Fox and close friend, Pete Davidson. It was first unveiled in August. It’ll be released in theatres and on demand at the same time, however it’s unclear which platform will host the film’s digital release.

Kelly plays London Clash, an actor who is going through an existential crisis. Clash’s ‘world is thrown upside down’ when he ‘wakes up to an implied breakup text from the love of his life’ on the morning of a vital meeting with the director of a Batman film, according to the logline.

Kelly’s third film in 2022 will be ‘Good Mourning’, following a cameo in ‘Jackass Forever’ and a starring role in the music drama ‘Taurus’. He’ll also be working with Pete Davidson for the third time, after cameos in ‘Big Time Adolescence’ and ‘The King Of Staten Island’.

Kelly’s album ‘Mainstream Sellout’ was released last month, and he will be joined by Avril Lavigne and Travis Barker of Blink-182 on a 41-city US stadium tour.
