There’s A ‘Yeezus’ Movie In The Making

Remember Kanye West’s American Psycho-Inspired short film? It was part of his promotion for Yeezus. It now looks like there is a real Yeezus movie in the making. According to an interview with Vice, celebrated author Bret Easton Ellis has been enlisted by Yeezy to write the screenplay for a film based on his 2013 album.

“[West] came and asked me to write the film,” Ellis said. “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 f--k it, I said yes. And that’s how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We’ll see what happens.”

It was known since an Ellis interview over the summer that the duo was collaborating on a film script, but now, things are looking to finally take shape although we have to wait for more specifics to emerge. Stay tuned.

    it might be not that bad I think, if the film focuses on the creative process of the record, showing the stages and the work that's being put into the production of the album then I think it might be quite a decent movie. kind of a documentary type maybe. just to show others how much work goes into creative process of even the simplest (or innovative in this case) of ideas, kind of like in design and architecture I guess, you don't appreciate until you are the part of it :)

    I don't think it will be a yeezus film. It will most likely be a film for his new album, that is if the rumors that he will release an album this year our true.
