Kanye Working On Film w/ Bret Easton Ellis

In a recent interview with Vice, novelist and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, The Canyons) talked a bit about working on a new film project with ‘Ye. The two were suspected to be collaborating on a project after Kanye appeared on Bret’s podcast last year and now we have confirmation thanks to Vice.

Can you tell me about the Kanye film collaboration?
You know what, I can’t. It’s in Kanye-land and that’s subject to a whole other timeframe. He came and asked me to write the film. I didn’t want to at first. Then I listened to Yeezus. It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car. He’d given me an advance copy and I thought, regardless of whether I’m right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this. So fuck it, I said yes. And that’s how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We’ll see what happens.

I really like him as a person. I know he comes off in this performance art way in the press, but if you’re just alone with him in a room talking for three hours, it’s kind of mind-blowing.

Hopefully, this film doesn’t get the Cruel Summer treatment and we won’t have to wait too long for it to come to fruition.
