Kanye West in Talks with Will Ferrell to Write Biopic?

By Amanda Wicks

There’s likely little truth to the circulating rumor that Kanye West is in talks with Will Ferrell and his comedy partner Adam McKay to help tell his story on the big screen, but of all the gossip making the rounds these days, we wish this was true.

Speaking with The Daily Star, a source close to West said the hip-hop turned fashion mogul wants to make sure his life story is told comedically, which is why he approached Ferrell and McKay. Together, they’re responsible for AnchormanStep Brothers and more. “He has been thinking about this this for a long, long time and he has been trading ideas with Will,” the source said. “Rather than take himself too seriously, he feels it has to be a comedy and not a preachy film” (via NME).

The idea is nothing new. In September, West told W Magazine that he wanted Ferrell to play him in a biopic. That’s because West has been a longtime fan of the actor. In 2013, West even made an appearance in Anchorman 2 and since then he has  praised the actor on social media. Earlier this year in February, West tweeted, “I just want to thank Will Ferrell for the years of joy he has brought into my life with amazing comedy.”
