Kanye West Adds "Filmmaker" To RésuméKanye West is creating a feature film that will serve as cinescape of the United States, inspired by his own music. West will co-produce. And star, of course.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Anonymous Content and New Line Cinema will assist West in producing this wide-reaching, socially relevant project, even if the details are rather vague so far. From the looks of it, West will merely executive produce (as will his manager), while Broadway producer George C. Wolfe ("Lackawanna Blues") will direct.
From the Reporter: "The producers are assembling about six writers and 10-12 directors to craft short stories, not music videos, that will be linked by a central narrative. The movie will feature new and old music from West.
The untitled Kanye West project will be produced by Richard Brown and Steve Golin ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"). West, West's manager G. Roberson and Wolfe will serve as executive producers. "This project will synthesize Kanye's vision with a fantastic group of filmmakers and create what will be a one-of-a-kind film experience," Brown said."
