Dr. Dre has been tapped to produce the upcoming horror-thriller Thaw, set to be written by Vik Weet for Crucial Films.

According to Variety, Dre is producing with Crucial partner Daniel Schnider, who came up with the idea for the flick. The movie focuses on “an ancient evil that emerges from the rapidly melting ice in the Yukon.”

Dre is no stranger to Hollywood. The super producer/rapper launched Crucial Films in 2007 with a first-look deal with New Line. This marks the first release under the partnership.
