As far as Kanye is concerned, hes reportedly very determined to make this happen for her. Ever since they started dating, theres been a lot of talk about how Kanye has been trying to legitimize Kim by removing the reality star stigma from her image. Some would argue that his efforts havent really been all that successful but the biopic could turn things around. Its going to be based on the Yeezus album. Thats pretty much a narrative of Kanyes life. [Kanye] will not appear in the movie [but] Kim is definitely going to be in it.
Kim is definitely going to be in it. The screenplay already features her character,” an insider said. The singer who has an eight-month-old daughter with ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star has, however, not decided on how big Kim’s role is going to be in the film. “They’re still working on the script, so it’s unclear at this point if Kim will be a major star of the movie or making a smaller cameo but her role in the movie will be pivotal,” the insider said.
The trailer first aired during his appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this week. PHOTOS: Kanye West’s 20 Most Jaw-Dropping Quotes The film was directed by Hype Williams and will appear in theaters, according to the trailer. Williams directed a number of West’s music videos, including “Diamonds From Sierra Leone,” “Stronger” and “Gold Digger.” Last week, novelist/screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis confirmed in an interview with Noisey that he is also collaborating with West on a film project.

Back in 2010, in the months leading up to Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy LP, the Chicago MC released a number of free tracks onto the Internet every Friday beginning in August.

Kanye West announced that a movie based on his Yeezus album is going to be made and will star his special lady Kim Kardashian and he has posted a trailer on his website. Apart from the information as to who will be filming and writing the movie, and Kims involvement, there has been no word as to who will play West.
2. DONDA’s Epic 86-Tweet Announcement, 2012 One January eve, Kanye West took to Twitter and passionately announced the launch of online “Donda,” the company he named after his late mother. Promising to “pick up where Steve Jobs left off,” West tweeted about everything from clothing to his work on an upcoming Jetsons movie, to the American school system, all as part of his trademark stream of consciousness. And while this “trillion-dollar start-up” has yet to crystallize (as far as we can see), West again succeeded in not only speaking his mind, but believing in himself enough to make grandiose promises. In an era of cynicism and being too cool, Kanye West is the opposite of both. Sure, he may be passionate about himself and his projects, but do any of us believe in ourselves enough to tweet for hours about what we planned on achieving?

That project, which was reportedly scripted by American Psycho mastermind Bret Easton Ellis, is an entirely different cinematic beast altogether.
