Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are set to marry next week in Florence.

The pair will get hitched at Belvedere Fort, which is a 16th century villa, on May 24. It was rented for 300,000 euros (£244,000), reports BBC Newsbeat.

James Franco recently claimed that Kanye West invited him and Seth Rogen to perform their parody of his song 'Bound 2' at his upcoming wedding. The actors filmed a spoof version of West's video for the song, which featured the rapper and his fiancée riding a motorbike through the desert while locked in a passionate embrace. The spoof version saw Franco and Rogen kissing and went viral.

Speaking on ABC's The View, Franco revealed that he and Rogen had received the offer from the couple ahead of their wedding, when it was previously thought that the pair would be wed in France: "Kim loved the video, and we didn't hear back from Kanye, so we kind of felt like, 'He's not bashing us, but he probably hates it but he's not going to say anything.' But then two weeks ago, we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone," said Franco. "We thought he was just going to let us have it. But he loved it! He wanted us to perform it live the night before his wedding at Versailles."

However, attendees at the wedding are unlikely to see the live action version of the spoof video: "It would have been awesome for about 20 seconds, but then there would be Seth with his shirt off in front all the Kardashians," admitted Franco.

Earlier this year it was reported that West had cancelled an Australian tour in order to finish work on his new album, the follow up to 2013's 'Yeezus'.
