News surrounding West's casting hit headlines on Monday (11May15), but the Stronger hitmaker's team is now denying he will appear in the movie musical.

The spokesperson tells, "Contrary to published reports, Kanye West will not be starring in Chiraq. However, there are discussions for West's possible involvement in the film's soundtrack, schedule permitting."

Jennifer Hudson, Common, John Cusack, Jeremy Piven and Samuel L. Jackson will reportedly star in the film, which will revolve around a woman committed to ending gang violence in Chicago, Illinois.
