Kanye West To Shoot Movie For New Album

Kanye West Shooting Movie For New Album

First, a collaboration with Justin Bieber and Raekwon, then a mini-album with Jay-Z and now…a movie? [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm] is a busy, busy dude.

Photos of Yeezy on the set of what may or may not be a movie for his next album, rumored to be titled “My Dark, Twisted Fantasy,” started cropping up around the Internet earlier today, including pics of him with a deer:

Kanye isn’t the first to go down this cinematic route, of course: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is a 14-minute mini-feature…

…and [lastfm]Snoop Dogg[/lastfm]’s “Murder Was The Case” was 18 minutes, though it spawned a 15-song soundtrack release. The line between music video and short film is so blurred, in fact, that you could make the case that [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]’s “Telephone” qualifies as well.

Could Kanye’s effort live up to those musical experiences? Or he Yeezy stretching himself too thin at this point?
