“Belly” Director Hype Williams Set To Direct Second Film Lust

Hype Williams was ahead of his time in the 90’s directing cinematic music videos for everyone from Missy Elliott to Nas. His highly-anticipated first movie, Belly in 1998 was a cult classic and finally he’s following it up.

Lust, written by Basic Instinct writer Joe Eszterhas, is going into production with a $28 million budget.

Williams’ second film will be shot in New York and Miami and is based on a 30-year-old man married to an older Miami-based magazine publisher.

The film is described as “Fatal Attraction in reverse.”
