*Hype Williams is on the move and is doing something a bit out of the ordinary with a new “erotic thriller.”
Entitled “Lust,” the project is about a 30-year-old wife of a Miami magazine publisher who become involved with a deceptive young man. But she doesn’t know he’s filming their sexual encounters.
After the script was sent to several directors, Williams was chosen for his extensive background in music videos. According to reports, there is a major music piece to the film.
“He’s always been able to make everything he does sexy and hip, which is what we need,” explained co-producer Peter J. Fruchtman.
As of now, the film has a hefty $28 million budget.
Casting has begun and filming is expected to begin Nov. 1.
