Kanye West has announced a movie based on his 'Yeezus' world tour.

The 36-year-old rapper has teased the concert film, which will be directed by frequent collaborator Hype Williams, with a 30-second teaser trailer on his official website.

The trailer intersperses footage from his ongoing world tour, as well as clips from his recent 'Bound 2' music video which featured his fiancée Kim Kardashian.

The website states: ''Yeezus film directed by Hype Williams coming to theatres''.

Music video director Hype Williams has previously been entrusted to helm the elaborate visuals for Kanye's hit songs 'All of the Lights', 'Stronger' and 'Gold Digger'.

The 'New Slaves' star has recently been linked to a biographical film based on his 'Yeezus' album and it's rumoured Kim, 33, may have a starring role.

Author Bret Easton Ellis divulged details of the secretive project, revealing he has been approached to pen the script but was initially reluctant to sign on.

He said: ''I didn't want to at first. Then I listened to 'Yeezus' and I thought, regardless of whether I'm right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this.''

Kanye isn't expected to star in the film, but Kim - who is the mother of his eight-month-old daughter North - is being lined up for a ''pivotal role''.
