(AllHipHop News) Big Sean is clearly aiming to do big things in the movie industry.
Last week, the rapper announced he was opening a luxury movie theater and concert venue in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan.
Now, Big Sean has unveiled plans a new film production company named Great Lakes Pictures. Big Sean started the company with Lawrence Lamont, who has directed several of Big Sean's most popular videos.
During the sit-down with the Detroit Free Press, Big Sean said he hopes to follow in the steps of F. Gary Gray.
“F. Gary Gray used to do Ice Cube’s videos and now he’s one of the biggest directors ever, so not only did they lead the way for us, but I feel like we would be shortcoming ourselves, we would be not taking advantage of a situation … if we didn’t show some type of evolution or take the road that those guys paved for us and go further or go in a different direction.”
Big Sean has a starring role in Jaden Smith's film “Life in a Year” and he's planning a major announcement regarding his first lead role in an animated film.
