Kanye West and 'American Psycho' Author to Make a Movie

Bret Easton Ellis in a recent interview with Vice spoke about a collaboration with Kanye West.

The critically acclaimed writer of 'American Psycho', Bret Easton Ellis, is collaborating with Kanye West in a new movie. The writer spoke with Vice, about the collaboration and he commented that at first he did not want to work with Mr. West but after hearing Kanye's latest album, Yeezus, he reconsidered.


Can you tell me about the Kanye film collaboration? You know what, I can’t. It’s in Kanye Land, and that’s subject to a whole other time frame. He came and asked me to write the film. 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 fuck it, I said yes. And that’s how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. We’ll see what happens. 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. (Via)
