Kanye West is digging for big screen gold. The rapper has teamed up with Anonymous Content and New Line Cinema to produce a feature film inspired by his music.
West also will appear in the film, which will create a multi-perspective portrait of the United States 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 project will be produced by Richard Brown and Steve Golin (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”). West, West’s manager G. Roberson and Wolfe will serve as executive producers.
“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,” Brown said.
