The as-yet-untitled project is said to focus on a day in what is described as the crazy, hectic life of the Grammy-winning artist.
HBO declined comment.
West, a music producer-turned-rapper, has released two albums -- 2004's "The College Dropout" and 2005's "Late Registration" -- that became multiplatinum hits and earned him six Grammys.
In March, West teamed with Anonymous Content and New Line Cinema to produce a feature film inspired by his music (HR 3/15). West also will appear in the film, which will create a multiperspective portrait of the U.S. as seen through the eyes of West and several filmmakers.
He is repped by WMA and Roberson.
Charles is a longtime executive producer and director of "Curb Your Enthusiasm", for which he has received multiple DGA Award and Emmy nominations.
