You may have seen T.I. in a supporting role for one of several movies over the past few years. He’s starred in films like ATL, American Gangster, Takers, Identity Theft, The Ant-Man movies, as well as some lesser-known flicks. His time to star as a lead actor in a movie has finally arrived.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, T.I. will play the main role in filmmaker Matty Rich’s Caller 100. The thriller will follow a radio DJ (played by T.I.) that has his life thrown for a loop when he meets a woman that calls into his show and begins to stalk him. The project mirrors a 1971 thriller starring Clint Eastwood called Play Misty for Me. In addition to starring as the lead, T.I. will co-produce the project through his Grand Hustle Entertainment company.

In the short term, T.I. will be in a few other projects before Caller 100 hits theaters. He will star alongside Eddie Murphy in Dolomite Is My Name, a Netflix project about comedian Rudy Ray Moore. He will also be in Monster Hunter, a Capcom video game adaptation, and a heist movie set in New Orleans after Katrina called Cut Throat City..
