Hype Williams To Direct Second Feature Film "Lust"

The famed Hip Hop music video director is hopping back in the director's chair for his first feature film since "Belly."

Hype Williams is following his 1998 feature debut Belly with his second trip to the big screen. The director, who has filmed iconic videos for Kanye West, 2Pac, Busta Rhymes and more, will sit at the helm for Lust, described a “Fatal Attraction in reverse.”

Lust, written by Basic Instinct scribe Joe Eszterhas, is on track to go into production with a $28 million budget. Agents are currently casting for the film, which begins shooting in November in Miami, Florida and New York City, New York.

According to Variety (via MovieLine), the film “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.”

Williams’ first feature film, Belly, was released in 1998 and starred DMX and Nas.
