The 'Barbie World' rapper is set to make a cameo appearance in Spike Lee's English-language adaptation of Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa's 1963 crime thriller of the same name that will star Denzel Washington, Jeffrey Wright and Ilfenesh Hadera.

A24 posted a photo to the social media site X (formerly known as Twitter) on Wednesday (10.04.24) of Lee and Washington with the caption: "No. 5 now in production."

'High and Low' marks the fifth collaboration between actor and filmmaker as they previously worked on the projects 'Inside Man', 'He Got Game', 'Malcolm X' and 'Mo' Better Blues'.

The original 'High and Low' was loosely based on the 1959 novel 'King's Ransom', written by Evan Hunter under the pen name Ed McBain, and tells the story of a shoe company executive who falls victim to extortion when his chauffeur’s son is kidnapped and held for ransom.

It is not yet clear if Lee's movie will follow the original storyline.

Ice – whose real name is Isis Gaston - received four Grammy nominations at the ceremony in February and has collaborated with artists such as Taylor Swift as she prepares to release her debut album 'Y2K' later this year.

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old star revealed that she is open to tips and suggestions about her music.

Ice told the Guardian newspaper: "A lot of people try to encourage me to do certain sounds or try to be like: ‘Oh, you got to sample this,’ and I take everything with a grain of salt.

"In the beginning, I used to be like: ‘Why is everybody trying to tell me what to do?’ But then I started to realise, like, everybody just wants to be part of something and contribute to something - so now I just appreciate it."
