Hype Williams' resume is nothing short of ridiculous. He's directed videos for hip-hop's biggest names and has consistently been one of the few go-to guys when it comes to creating the visuals for smash hits.
In 1998 he directed his first feature film, Belly, starring DMX and Nas, but his work hasn't made it to the theaters since. There has been talk of other movie projects, but they all seem to fall apart before being realized. That could all change soon, since it's been announced that Hype is planning to direct a new movie called Lust.
The details of the director's second feature film are a little shady as of now, but the movie is being described as a "sexual thriller," and according to Movie Line, the budget is $28M. It was written by Joe Eszterhas, the man responsible for Basic Instinct and Showgirls.
