Ice Spice to star alongside Denzel Washington in new Spike Lee film

Ice Spice will soon be making her acting debut alongside Denzel Washington in an upcoming Spike Lee film.

According to a Variety report, Ice Spice has already begun shooting her scenes for the film, though details on her role are currently under wraps. The film, titled High And Low, is an upcoming English remake and reinterpretation of Akira Kurosawa’s 1963 crime drama of the same name.

The original film is based on Ed McBain’s novel King’s Ransom and stars Toshiro Mifune as a wealthy man who is forced to pay the ransom money for his employee’s kidnapped son.

The remake of High And Low will be released in cinemas by A24 before heading to Apple TV+ (as reported by The Guardian), though a release date for both cinematic release and on streaming have yet to be announced.

Spike Lee’s version of High And Low will mark his fifth collaboration with Denzel Washington. Their past work together include 1990’s Mo’ Better Blues, 1992’s Malcom X, 1998’s He Got Game and 2006’s Inside Man.

On the Ice Spice front, the rapper is due to release her highly anticipated debut album ‘Y2K’ sometime this year. The album “is complete” according to the rapper, and has most recently “passed the car test”.

‘Y2K’ will follow the Bronx rapper’s January 2023 EP, ‘Like..?’, which featured viral hits including ‘Munch (Feelin’ U)’ and ‘In Ha Mood’. NME awarded that release four stars, with Thomas Smith praising Ice Spice’s sardonic delivery and level-headed confidence.

“The road is still long for Ice Spice, and weathering the post-viral breakout period feels crucial: longevity feels attainable, but casual listeners and even some fans remain fickle,” Smith wrote. “On ‘Like…?’, she appears unbothered about chasing clout or fans – she knows they’ll come around eventually anyway.”
