The massive Sony leak has unearthed seemingly endless nuggets of entertainment industry gossip—for example, now we know Jessica Alba books hotels under the alias Cash Money, and that Channing Tatum emails with more "haha"s than a teenage girl. Kanye West, previously immune to data breaches and disease, has fallen victim to the hack, now that word of a self-centered feature film has been revealed.

Kanye West directed by Kanye West and narrated by Kanye West, possibly coming soon to a theater near you.
