Kanye West to release Hype Williams-directed <em>Yeezus</em> film in theatres

Watch the trailer for his mysterious Yeezus film now.

Kanye West has premiered a trailer for a Yeezus film over on his website. Featuring footage from his visually stunning live show, the clip is accompanied with a note: “Yeezus film directed by Hype Williams coming to theaters.”

Famed music video director Hype Williams (not these guys) directed the videos for Kanye’s ‘Diamond From Sierra Leone’, ‘Gold Digger’, ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’, ‘Stronger’, and ‘All of the Lights’, among others. He also wrote the script for Kanye’s Runaway short film.

No word yet on a release date, or if this is the rumored film project that Kanye has worked on with Bret Easton Ellis. Earlier this week, Kanye performed a medley of hits on Late Night with Seth Meyers. [via Complex]
