Kanye West Running Late For Cannes Film Festival Unveiling


    Kanye West is famed for his last-minute approach, and his latest project shows little sign of bucking the trend. The rapper is supposedly preparing a film to be unveiled at this year’s Cannes Festival. He will be writing, directing, producing and scoring the 30-minute “thriller” that is likely to star fellow musician Kid Cudi. But with the festival opening next month, a source close to West has revealed that filming has not still not yet begun. Since the film will not form part of the official festival program, West is under no obligation to finish the project in time. Nevertheless, if it is possible to measure the rapper’s boundless confidence, then the fact that he is currently leasing a space in the French city where he can show his work may suggest that he believes the project can be punctually completed.
