Kanye West and Common are reportedly going to star in Spike Lee’s Film titled “Chiraq.” This movie is expected to focus on the violence, gangs, and gun issues in the city. According to The Wrap, Amazon Studios has already picked up the movie. Details about the movie aren’t exact though because a majority of the prospective cast members haven’t signed an offical contract.
Other actors that have been recruited for the movie are said to be Jeremy Piven and Samuel L. Jackson. The gun violence in Chicago was recently spoken about on the CNN series Chicagoland. Also last year, Noisey made a docu-series surrounding the lives of several Chiraq rappers on the rise.
Lately, Kanye seems to be focused on not just his music and fashion but film more than ever. He is executive producing the soundtrack of TV drama “Underground” and will appear in the upcoming “Zoolander” sequel.
