Sent back i August, Rutberg wrote that project contains “cinematic and technological innovation,” and makes for an “immersive cinema experience.”
“I supervise all of Kanye’s film and media projects, and we have a major film project coming up that involves both cinematic and technological innovation, so I naturally thought Sony and wanted to reach out,” wrote Rutberg. “We premiered a multi-screen cinema experience to great response at Cannes 2012, and are looking to take the storytelling to the next level with a feature length film, shot for an immersive cinema experience.”
West may also appear in a Christmas Eve film next year. Reportedly starring Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, West will appear in a scene described by producer James Weaver as “fucking awesome.”
