Certainly no stranger to filmmaking, Dr. Dre, via his relatively young Crucial Films production company (launched in 2007), has stepped in to produce a horror/thriller titled Thaw, from a script penned by Vik Weet, based on an original idea by Dre's production company partner Daniel Schnider.

So what's Thaw about?

The story will center on an ancient evil that emerges from the rapidly melting ice in the Yukon.

Renny Harlin has signed on to direct the film.

No word on cast yet.

Crucial Films, by the way, has a first-look deal at New Line Cinema
