Many of us know, and love, Hype Williams’s first full-length film Belly, which starred rappers DMX and Nas. Now, the notorisous music video director is set to begin shooting his second full-length film this November, some 13 years after Belly’s release. This film, entitled Lust, is written by Joe Eszterhas (Basic Instinct, Showgirls). The film is described as a “Fatal Attraction in reverse”. Here is the alledged plot:
“Story centers on a 30-year-old man married to an older Miami-based magazine publisher. The publisher is seduced by a younger, charming playboy — who secretly videotapes himself and his new lover having sex, leading to the woman’s life unraveling.”
Again, filming begins in November. The setting of Lust mainly takes place in Miami and New York, and also has a $28M budget. When asked why Williams was ultimately chosen, producer Peter J. Fruchtman said “He’s always been able to make everything he does sexy and hip, which is what we need.” Although Hype is not the writing this film, it will still be a joy to get another Hype-directed flick. Keep your eyes peeled for the sexual thriller, Lust.
