Drake To Star With Al Pacino In Arbitrage?

UPDATE: We just heard from the producer of this film, apparently Al Pacino will not be in the movie.

Everyone’s new favorite rapper, Drake, may soon be returning to acting. The Canadian born rapper got his start on the TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation. Now it looks like he may returning to the silver screen. Recent reports state that Drake is in talks to star alongside Al Pacino in Nicholas Jarecki’s upcoming film, Arbitrage. Aside from Mr. Pacino, the cast also included Susan Sarandon and Eva Green.

The film follows ‘a hedge fund magnate who is in over his head and desperate to complete the sale of his shady trading empire to a major bank before his fraud is revealed.’ Seems interesting and with Pacino, Sarandon and Green set to star, it could turn out well. As for Drake, well, I’m not sure how much confidence I have in his acting. He’s a talented musician, no doubt about that, but whether he can hold his own against acting legends like Al Pacino, well, I guess we’ll have to see.
