The Film Arcade has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the Josh Mond-directed James White, starring the 31-year-old part-Mexican American hip-hop singer/actor, whose real name is Scott Mescudi.
The film is a coming-of-age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his self-destructive behavior in the face of momentous family changes.
James White also stars Christopher Abbott and Cynthia Nixon.
The film premiered at the 2015 Sundance Sundance Film Festival and won the Best of Next Audience Award.
Kid Cudi, who is starring in the film version of HBO’s series Entourage, previously starred in the premium cable network’s series How to Make It in America. He also appeared opposite Aaron Paul in the DreamWorks video game film adaptation Need For Speed.
