Well? It looks like they're ready to hit the big time, folks. Supposedly Kanye West is writing and directing a movie based on his Yeezus album, and duh -- Kim Kardashian will have a leading role in the flick. Probably playing herself or someone based on herself if I had to guess.
That Kanye. He's all about being original.
And I know what you're thinking. This will be some low-budget film that won't get anywhere close to winding up in theaters. Yeah ... that's what I initially figured too.
But get this one: Kanye is reportedly working with Bret Easton Ellis, the creator of American Psycho, on this project -- which means it's probably going to be a legit movie.
Whoa. If all of this is true and this flick is really in the works, there's a decent chance that it could take Kim to a whole new level of superstardom. From what one source close to Kanye told Hollywood Life, it sounds like the role will definitely prove to be a challenging one for her. He/she said, "... her role in the movie will be pivotal. Her role is going to be very dramatic. Far from the bubbly happy persona that she’s always played."
Huh. I've never really thought of Kim as a serious actress, but hey, stranger things have happened. There's always the chance that she could blow us away on the big screen and prove to be way more talented than anyone ever imagined.
And while that would be great news for Kim if it happens, there's also a very good possibility that Kanye will wind up getting his feathers ruffled a bit. It's no secret that he kind of digs being the center of attention, and if Kim suddenly winds up gaining all sorts of extra fame and recognition due to this flick? He may wind up being all pouty and jealous and feel left in the dust.
And if Kanye ain't happy, nobody's happy. (Least of all Kim.) For her sake, I can't decide if this movie happening is a good thing or a bad one. Can't you see him going all diva on her, leading to her kicking him to the curb because she's a big-time movie star who can probably do better?
(Time will tell.)
Will you watch the Yeezus movie when and if it comes out?
