As in Silver Screen

The Grammy-winning rapper will executive produce and appear in an innovative feature film inspired by his music.

The untitled New Line Cinema project will boast a multiperspective portrait of the United States as seen through the eyes of West and several filmmakers. George C. Wolfe, the Broadway veteran who directed HBO’s Emmy-winning “Lackawanna Blues,” will oversee the creative process as an executive producer.

About six writers and 10-12 directors will craft short stories, not music videos, that will be linked by a central narrative. The movie will feature new and old music from West.

“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,” said Richard Brown, who will produce with Steve Golin.

Do you Kanye. Do you.
