Rumors that the “Atlanta” star was being courted to star in the reimagined horror flick surfaced a few days ago.

But, Lakeith confirmed it with a (now deleted) post on his Instagram page.

He wrote, “Since the beans are spilling…I will not clean them.”



Lakeith is a fantastic choice for the role and I know he will make Tony Todd proud!
