Colson “Machine Gun Kelly” Baker is one of the most iconic artists in the industry. The musician is known for his chart-topping singles as well his bold fashion choices. However, this time he’s on the news for an entirely different reason.
The 31-year old previously stepped up in-front of the camera in motion pictures such as Bird Box and The King of Staten Island. Now AllHipHop reports that Kelly has decided to claim the director’s seat for his upcoming film.
Good Mourning represents Baker’s directorial debut. He also co-wrote the film alongside fellow musician Derek “Mod Sun” Smith. The Internet Killed the Rockstar album creator served as a co-director with MGK as well.
Additionally, Machine Gun Kelly stars as the lead character named London Ransom. Good Mourning is backed by Cedar Park Studios and Open Road Films. Co-founder/co-CEO of Cedar Park Studios, Chris Long said in a statement that the studio’s goal will be represented through this project.
“Our goal at Cedar Park Studios is to provide opportunities to fresh, creative voices in the industry and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with first-time filmmakers Colson and Mod, Bold in their approach, they have assembled a troupe of top-tier talent to join them on this hilarious ride. We’re ecstatic to be a part of their filmmaking debut.”
In addition to Machine Gun Kelly, the cast of Good Mourning includes Mod Sun, Becky G, Dove Cameron, Whitney Cummings, GaTa, Zach Villa, Jenna Boyd, and Boo Johnson.
