Good Choice? Kanye West Wants Will Ferrell (Oyinbo Guy) to Play Him In His Life Story Movie

Kanye West has been in talks with Will Ferrell to make his life story into a movie.

The 39-year-old rapper, who is married to reality star Kim Kardashian West, has been in contact with the comedian to help create a funny film about himself, full of comical quips.

A friend of the hip hop artist told the Daily Star newspaper: "He has been thinking about this this for a long, long time and he has been trading ideas with Will. Rather than take himself too seriously, he feels it has to be a comedy and not a preachy film."

It is also believed that the rapper would like movie director and Will's friend Adam McKay, to help out with the project because he has been a fan of the pair's previous work.

Kanye, who has kids North, three, and Saint, 11 months, with Kim, is no stranger to expressing his love of Will's talents after previously describing him as a "living, breathing god" and saying his existence "is a blessing".

In a previous interview, Kanye once said: "He is one of my personal gods. I would like Will Ferrell to play me in The Kanye West Story. Can you make that happen?"
