Drake takes the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter. The rapper discusses diving into the film world, with plans to produce both film and TV for platforms like Netflix, (he just announced he’s bringing back the British drama Top Boy), and he’ll also be pairing with Apple beyond music.
About halfway through the interview Drake’s manager discloses that he could’ve worked with now-disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, before the allegations.
“Weinstein chased Drake to star in and produce a film called The Heist, but Drake rebuffed the overtures long before the mogul faced dozens of sexual harassment and assault claims. “I vetted him with five people and got bad feedback about working with him,” Future says simply.”
Drizzy will make his debut as producer with The Carter Effect, which will focus on NBA great Vince Carter, and is packaged as a documentary. He also noted that he isn’t stopping music anytime soon, but will take a 6-month break to take film and TV seriously. To read the full interview, click here.
