Tech N9ne is set to appear in the upcoming Night Of The Living Dead: Origins 3D, his debut acting role in a major motion picture. In the movie, Tech is simply set to play a zombie, and has already completed filming his role while in California for the Independent Grind Tour. The movie is produced by Simon West, the director of such movies like Con Air, Tomb Raider, and The General’s Daughter. This also marks the directorial debut for director Zebediah De Soto.
We originally found out about Tech’s zombie-cameo through a picture that he uploaded to his Twitter account. Here’s Tech’s Twitter activity in which he references the movie.
