Kanye West is set to make is movie producer debut

Superstar rapper Kanye West is set to produce his first movie with best mate Jay Z after the pair signed on as executive producers for funny man Chris Rock's new film Top Five.

The film, written and directed by Chris Rock, received rave reviews following its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival last weekend, causing a worldwide bidding war for the rights to the film which Paramount studio's eventually managed to snag.

It seems Kim Kardashian's husband isn't the only big name working on the new film as it was revealed The Roots' drummer Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson will serve as the films executive music producer.

Jay Z is no stranger to producing hit films as he teamed with legend director Baz Luhrmann on the box office smash The Great Gatsby and is also working on Will Smith's remake of Annie, due to release this Christmas, so we are sure he could offer Kanye some help.

However we are not sure how Kanye will cope sharing his executive producer duties with the superstar as the self declared "artistic genius" isn't exactly known for his ease to work with!

He did however allow TV cameras to capture the lead up to his wedding with reality TV star Kim Kardashian for her show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a decision which led to confrontation between Jay Z and his wife Beyonce.
