After ‘Ye had Twitter abuzz with mention of potential involvement in an upcoming Jetsons flick, producer Denise Di Novi has confirmed to MTV that the rumored talks are true. 

According to Di Novi, Kanye himself reached out to producers and expressed his interest toward the film, which has been in development for some time now.

“He reached out and said he’s a huge Jetsons fan,” she said. “There are a lot of Jetsons fanatics out there, especially people that are into either futuristic science or design. He was interested in creatively brainstorming what we were doing with the movie and what ideas he might have. It was a really friendly, preliminary conversation.” 

Di Novi also said of their idea session, “Kanye’s always been a Jetsons fan, I think because he’s so into design and he loves the design aspects, so we had a fun brainstorming conversation.” 

With that said, can we expect to catch the work of Yeezy’s artistic genius on the big screen? Possibly, but Di Novi is still unsure at the moment whether or not Kanye is going to contribute as creative director. “He was going to think about it more and see if he got inspired visually,” says Novi. “He’s a very visual artist.”Stephanie Long
