Kanye West Filming "Movie Companion" to Upcoming Album


Just a few days after announcing that a collaboration with Jay-Z is in the works, it appears that Kanye West is looking to break into a new medium.

MTV reports that the rapper is working on a “movie companion” to his upcoming album.

West has been filming in Prague and tweeting updates from the set. Last week he wrote, “Last day in Prague. We’ve shot some good stuff so far…really good…NO! I mean REALLY GOOD!”

He later tweeted, “Just wrapped for the day. Been shooting 16 hour days…I’m so excited… It’s like a child’s delusions become reality!”

No word on whether the film will be bundled with the album or released separately.
