You may not think Will Ferrell perfectly fits as playing one of the most popular rappers in the world but Kanye West thinks so. We heard reports a few months ago of West wanting Ferrell to play him in a movie and now we are now hearing that the two have been seriously talking about it.
Rumblings of Kanye West wanting Will Ferrell to play him in a supposed ‘Kanye West Story’ surfaced in a W Magazine interview this past September for its “Royals” issue. West even went further by explaining that his personality is like Ferrell’s character Buddy in the movie Elf, in that he just wants to “spread joy to the world” with his music. Now according to Metro, a source who is a close friend of Kanye just revealed that the The Life of Pablo artist has “been thinking about this for a long, long time and he has been trading ideas with Will.” West supposedly wants a film about himself, which he has already approved to be a comedy rather than a drama or documentary project. “Rather than take himself too seriously, he feels it has to be a comedy and not a preachy film,” the insider added.
