Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT #2758 has signed a movie deal. The Ape will become an actor in a Mexican-produced movie.
Bored Ape #2758 is owned by Rzubi.eth. According to the Bored Ape Gazette, the BAYC collector is an Executive Producer at a Mexican production house called Pirexia Films. The latter is currently working on the movie in partnership with a famous Hollywood-based production house.
“BAYC #2758 just signed a movie deal through Pirexia Films. From the Director of El Chapo, Netflix, JM Cravioto. More to come in the next few weeks! First NFT actor in a Mexican film with SAG equivalent salary,” tweeted the NFT owner.
The BAYC’s role will be that of a famous social media influencer called “Scully Joe.” In the movie, the Ape is known for hosting parties. According to Rzubi, an important scene happens during one of those.
Surprisingly, the BAYC token will be treated as a real actor. The BAYC token will receive a salary equivalent to that of a Screen Actors Guild member and will appear in film titles as an actor. More than that, the Ape will appear in the premier as a digital actor and will interview with the press.
The movie is currently in production. It is expected to be released by January of next year.
This is not the first time a BAYC NFT was used as an “actor.” In June 2022, world-known rappers Eminem and Snoop Dogg released a music video to their track “From The D 2 The LBC,” featuring ape imagery. Before this, Snoop Dogg and rapper Wiz Khalifa issued eight music tracks about BAYC and the project’s native currency ApeCoin.
