Kanye West has teamed up with Anonymous Content and New Line Cinema to
produce a feature film based on his music.
West also will appear in the film, which will create a multiperspective
portrait of the U.S. as seen through the eyes of West and several filmmakers.
George C. Wolfe, the Broadway figure who directed "Lackawanna Blues,"
will oversee the creative process on the film. 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").
