We don’t get a lot of chances to write about Kanye West on this site. He hasn’t appeared in any of the Fast and the Furious films, and it’s been awhile since he had a meltdown on live television. But now he’s stepping into the world of filmmaking. I think.
Posted below, we have the trailer for West’s latest vanity project Runaway, a 40-minute short film he’s been shopping around. He’s worked with a lot of talented directors throughout his career, so why did he choose to direct this himself? Despite the obvious reason.
"I know some of my images, my ideas, were so amateur, no director would want to do this for me. So I had to do it myself. I’d rather it be my vision and my dream and be sub par, than for it to be someone else’s vision and perfect."
The same quote can also be applied to Brett Ratner‘s work on X-Men 3.
