Kanye West on Yeezus tour

The author of American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis, has revealed that Kanye's been in touch.

Could we have a Kanye West film before we have another Kanye West album? 

In an interview with Vice, American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis revealed that the 'Bound 2' rapper had been in touch about hooking up to make a Yeezus movie

"He came and asked me to write the film" Ellis said.

"I didn’t want to at first. Then I listened to Yeezus. It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car. He’d given me an advance copy and I thought, regardless of whether I’m right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this. So f**k it, I said yes. And that’s how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We’ll see what happens."

Kanye has spokenof how the book has influenced his work in the past, so when can we expect this film to go into production?
"It’s in Kanye-land and that’s subject to a whole other timeframe." 
But the famous author has revealed that he's spent time with Kanye, and he's impressed.
"I really like him as a person. I know he comes off in this performance-art way in the press, but if you’re just alone with him in a room talking for three hours, it’s kind of mind-blowing."

Coming to cinema near you soon.
