Kanye West Filming Movie To Accompany Album Release?

Kanye West is in a creative groove right now, finishing his own album, doing a remix for Justin Bieber and announcing plans for a joint LP with Jay-Z.

In addition to all his musical ventures, the rapper is working on a “movie companion” to his upcoming album, a source with knowledge of the project told MTV News. Photos from the set appeared today.

The images do not appear to be from any particular scene, though, as West looks to be in between takes from filming; one image shows West walking over to a waiting deer. “On set of the movie,” ‘Ye wrote in a Twitter message last week. “This doe just refuses to sit still. … I told the deer … ‘what would Bambi do?’ & she looked at me like I was crazy.”

The rapper has been writing messages via Twitter about his overseas adventures, particularly about details surrounding the shoot.

“Last day in Prague,” he wrote late last week. “We’ve shot some good stuff so far … really good … NO! I mean REALLY GOOD!

“Just wrapped for the day,” he continued later. “Been shooting 16 hour days. … I’m so excited. … It’s like a child’s delusions become reality!”

A representative for West did not respond to a request for comment from MTV News.

It’s unclear as of press time which director is attached to the project and whether the film will be bundled with West’s forthcoming album. His last album, 808s & Heartbreaks, featured a Spike Jonze-directed short, “We Were Once a Fairytale,” inspired by the track “See You in My Nightmares” featuring Lil Wayne. The movie was an iTunes only release.
