"Kanye will not appear in the movie. Kim is definitely going to be in it. The screenplay already features her character," an insider said. The singer who has an eight-month-old daughter with 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star has, however, not decided on how big Kim's role is going to be in the film.
"We gotta lot of stuff coming out this year. A Lot of different features, a lot of G.O.O.D. Friday things, I got a couple more mixtapes I want to release and an album," CyHi the Prynce told MTV News on Wednesday (February 27) when he came to New York to promote his new released Black Hystori Project mixtape. Back in 2010, in the months leading up to Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy LP, the Chicago MC released a number of free tracks onto the Internet every Friday beginning in August. Under the G.O.O.D. Friday umbrella, Yeezy dropped tracks like "Monster," "Lord Lord Lord" and "The more... Joy." Many of the tracks also featured members of the G.O.O.D.

Thats pretty much a narrative of Kanyes life. [Kanye] will not appear in the movie [but] Kim is definitely going to be in it. The screenplay already features her character, says a spy. Theyre still working on the script, so its unclear at this point if Kim will be a major star of the movie or making a smaller cameo, but her role in the movie will be pivotal, the insider continues, adding that, her role is going to be very dramatic, far from the bubbly happy persona that shes always played. Kanye wants the film to be in loving memory of his mother Donda West, who died in 2007 of complications from plastic surgery. The two were famously close, with the rapper even saying in an interview this week that one of his biggest regrets in life is that Donda never got to meet his daughter with Kim, North.
