Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be one of the most lucrative couples in Hollywood history — those albums, apps, reality TV shows are MEGA money winners after all — but it looks like the married pair are set to kick their empire up a notch with this latest business move.
Whether we care to admit it or not, we're all a little bit obsessed with the Kardashians and the antics that they get up to on their reality TV series, so it kind of makes sense that these two should seize the opportunity to take their lives to the big screen in a film adaptation based on, well, their own lives. And that's exactly what Kimye are planning on doing...
Set to give us the ultimate insight into the life of the Kardashian-Wests', this is the news that their die-hard fans have no doubt been DREAMING of. And while it may still be in the pre-production stages, the pitch has apparently gained serious interest from multiple movie companies stateside.
The Daily Star chatted to a senior executive from Universal studios, who shed some light on the situation: 'I doubt we are talking about an Oscar-worthy production with high artistic merit. But with almost 45 million Twitter followers between them, they have a worldwide fan base which virtually guarantees box office success followed by strong DVD sales.’
There's no doubt that the film would mean big bucks for Kim, Kanye, their growing brood and the film studio alike, so we reckon it's only a matter of time before one of the big players in the industry snaps up the rights.
However, in a rather unexpected turn for the books, it doesn't look like Kim and Kanye will be starring in the film themselves. Yep — we're shocked too! Instead it'll be a biopic with actors stepping into their iconic shoes. And who's up to the task? Kimye have some ideas of their own...
34-year-old Kim is reportedly eyeing the likes of Christina Hendricks or Sofia Vergara to play her, while the same newspaper claims that 38-year-old Kanye would like Empire’s Terrence Howard to be him. Brilliant.
The big question is, are you ready to see Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's life on the big screen? These are the moments we PRAY make the final edit:
- Kanye's 'casual' proposal of marriage to Kim at a baseball stadium
- *THAT* wedding
- The 'magic' that happened in Paris
- The welcoming of their first child North, and the announcement of Kim's second pregnancy
- Kanye going through Kim's wardrobe to help her define her new 'vision' for the year
- Kim putting the first moves on Kanye in the early stages of their relationship
- Her face when he gifted her that, er, bespoke Hermes bag
Fitting all of their stellar moments into two hours is a task we're definitely not up to. Kimye — you may want to consider a trilogy...
