Sources says 'Ye is in talks of filming a mini-movie similar to 'Runaway.'

Kanye West reportedly has eyes set on the Middle East. According to The New York Observer, via Pitchfork, 'Ye sent a few members from his team to the Middle East to discuss an upcoming film project. The project, said to be similar to his "Runaway" 30-minute mini-movie in 2010, is to be filmed in March.

"[Kanye West] recently sent representatives to the Persian Gulf region to scout locations for a short fillm," The Observer states. "Sources tell The Observer that Mr. West sent members of his team to meet with film companies and government officials based out of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Doha Qatar to explore the idea of a production. A number of local municipal officials and film companies are said to be engaged in what was characterized as a heated bidding war for the contracts involved in bringing Mr. West's vision to life."

Allegedly, West chose to film in the Middle East after performing in Abu Dhabi, last year, and "have fallen in love with the region."

So many questions! Will the mini-movie lead to 'Ye's rumored 2012 album? Is it a sneak peek at the talents behind his new company, Donda? What do you think?
