The Mortician will hit DVD and OnDemand next year.
Method Man has come a long way from his early days of making his name with the Wu-Tang Clan. The Staten Island emcee has appeared in more than a dozen movies since his first showing (1997’s One Eight Seven), and his next film, The Mortician, adds another starring role to his résumé. In the film, Meth plays the titular character, a lonely mortician in a bleak future world who finds a measure of joy in helping others say goodbye to their loved ones. His routine is disrupted when he encounters a boy is running from his father, a local crime boss.
The film, which was written and directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, showed at several film festivals this year, including New Orleans Film Festival, Berlinale Berlin Film Festival, German Fantasy Fest and Sitges Film Festival. It didn’t secure theater distribution, but you can catch Method Man’s performance OnDemand and on DVD.
