London - Kanye West is making a movie with Brett Easton Ellis.

The controversial author was initially reluctant to work with the 'Bound 2' hitmaker, but was instantly won over when he heard the rapper's latest album 'Yeezus', though he is unsure when the project will go ahead.

He said: "It's in Kanye Land, and that's subject to a whole other time frame." offered Ellis on the status of the film.

"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 f**k it, I said yes. And that's how it happened.

"That was seven or eight months ago. We'll see what happens."

As well as being a fan of Kanye's music, the 'American Psycho' author finds him a fascinating person, though he admits he doesn't always come across well to the public.

He added in an interview with Vice: "I really like him as a person. I know he comes off in this performance-art way in the press, but if you're just alone with him in a room talking for three hours, it's kind of mind-blowing." - Bang Showbiz
