Rap mogul Percy “Master P” Miller and his son Romeo are preparing to star in their first full-length feature together in the new horror movie The Pig People.
The Pig People will star Romeo as “TJ,” one of five college students who venture into a haunted forest to shoot a documentary for their film class.
The students venture into the woods seeking to debunk an 18th century Louisiana myth surrounding the fearsome, half-human, half-swine “pig people.”
“I’ve never done a horror movie before,” said Romeo, who plans on majoring in film while playing sports at USC.
“It’s a different kind of acting and the challenge is really allowing me to take my game to the next level,” Romeo told AllHipHop.com “We’re gonna make the audience jump out of their seats with this.”
In addition to actor Daeg Faerch (Halloween), Romeos father, reformed gangsta rapper Master P., is co-starring in the movie as the films villain.
The Pig People is being produced by Vault Load Films and directed by David Gueringer and is scheduled to be released in 2009.
