Very unsurprisingly, Kanye West is reportedly turning his colourful life into a movie.

But you WILL be surprised when you discover who he wants to play him…

Will Ferrell.


Kanye also wants it to be a funny flick, which shocked us, as no-one takes Kanye’s life more seriously than Kanye.


Insiders say the 39-year-old hip hop star has already discussed “hilarious” plot ideas with Ferrell, who he once described as a “living, breathing god.”

A source says: “Kanye has been thinking about this for a long, long time and he has been trading ideas and discussions with Will to make a funny comedy about his life.

“But rather than take himself too seriously, he really feels it has to be a comedy and not a preachy film.

He wants it to be an easy watch, filled with laughter just like the movies he loves.”

In fact, Kanye loves Will so much, he even agreed to star in Anchorman 2.


West has previously praised Ferrell for his films, calling him a “living, breathing god” in a blaze of tweets in February.

“I just want to thank Will Ferrell for the years of joy he has brought into my life with amazing comedy,” he said in one tweet.

He also wants his romance with wife Kim to appear in the flick.


“He’s exchanged various ideas with Will and his comedy partner Adam (McKay) and doesn’t want a young actor playing him,” an insider says.

“Instead, he’s suggested playing the role himself, aged 13, sitting in his bedroom writing lyrics and sporting a comedy pair of braces to emphasise the point home.

Will and Adam are both very open to the idea and think they can come up with enough comic material, with the help of Kanye, to put together a comedy film just as good as what they’ve worked on before.”
