Los Angeles : Actress Brittany Snow announced that rapper Scott Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, has been cast in her feature directorial debut ‘September 17th’.In an interview with Variety about ‘X’, the horror film that Cudi and Snow star in together, the two shared their excitement about continuing to work together, reports variety.com.”I can’t really speak too much, except that Scott’s doing a part in the movie, so that’s cool,” Snow said.”I couldn’t believe that she wanted me in it,” Cudi said. “She had told me about the movie while we were on set (for ‘X’), but she never asked me to be in it. I was like, maybe she’s waiting to see how (‘X’) turns out. It’s gonna be awesome. Really great script.””I was watching Ti (West, director of ‘X’) a lot during the filming of this,” Snow said.”And I think that something that I learned from him that I’ll take with me is the specificity of knowing the through line of what you want, and being really strong and clear in your convictions of it.”I like to play around on set, but it lends itself really nicely when you know that your director has a complete handle on exactly what they want. I hope I can live up to what everyone else has been doing.”‘September 17th’ follows a woman, named Riley, who struggles with food and body image issues and has recently been discharged from rehab.
