Acclaimed author Bret Easton Ellis — best known for American Psycho — has confirmed that he’s penned a script for a forthcoming Kanye West film. According to a recent interview with VICE, the writer was inspired by Yeezy‘s latest record, Yeezus. Check out what he has to say below:
“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.”
Sounds promising. Or not, depending on which side of the Yeezy divide you stand on. In any case, stay tuned for further details as they unfold.
