Kanye West Feature Film Plans Revealed In Sony E-Mail Leaks

Ye' may also make a guest appearance in Seth Rogen and James Franco's "The Interview."

Additional leaked Sony Emails have surfaced on the Internet this morning (December 15), revealing a potential feature length film starring Kanye West.

According to The Daily Beast, the e-mail chain discloses a conversation between Kanye's creative director Elon Rutberg and Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chairman Amy Pascal. Within the conversation, which dates back to August 4, Rutberg pitches an "innovative next level film" to Pascal:

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," Rutberg wrote in the e-mail. "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.

There is speculation that the movie Rutberg is referencing is the Hype Williams-directed Yeezus film Kanye teased in February.

Another e-mail, sent three days later (August 7), reveals plans for Kanye to make an appearance in Seth Rogen and James Franco's upcoming comedy The Interview. Rutberg suggests that Rogen, Anthony Mackie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ye' should reenact a scene from the 80s film BIG.

We have a specific idea to attach to THE INTERVIEW that will crush. Seth, Joe, and [Anthony] Mackie reenacting the scene from BIG on the floor piano at FAO Schwartz with KANYE WEST. It's fucking awesome.
