Date: February 18
"Big news: In a new interview with Vice, American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis revealed that he's writing a film for Kanye West and...well, that's all he revealed. Still, though, that's huge! Explain, Ellis:
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 timeframe. 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."—Tanya Ghahremani
