Kanye West taps 'American Psycho' author Bret Easton Ellis for movie

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Kanye West is no stranger to making headlines and making businesses deals that seem unlikely. West's latest project is to work with American Psycho author Best Easton Ellis, for an upcoming untitled movie project.

When West first asked Ellis to work on the project he turned it down.

"You know what, I can’t," Ellis told Vice. "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."

He continued, "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."

MTV News added that Ellis and West have not gone into detail about the upcoming project and that is has been surrounded in mystery.

No other details surrounding the film have been released from Ellis or West.

Last year, the two worked on a viral Psycho-themed video, which spoofed the novel and film.
