However, the singer - whose band is up for three MTV EMA nominations this November - was forced to turn down Yeezy, saying his decision was down to time constraints.
Leto - known for his roles in major Hollywood films including Fight Club and Requiem For A Dream - told the BBC: "I'd been asked by various people to direct videos, people like Kanye West have reached out, and that's always really flattering, but it's hard to find the time to do that for other people.
"Usually when I make a video, directing, editing, production, it takes me months and months and months, it's not really a short-term affair, so I tend to not really have the time to do it for other people. It'd be fun to, at some point, you never know."
The two artists, who have worked together in the past collaborating on the song Hurricane 2.0 in 2010, previously performing together in at the EMAs in Madrid, where the band premiered his single, Power.
Elsewhere the Do Or Die singer has said that he wants to make a music video for every song on their latest album, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams.
Speaking exclusively to MTV News UK ahead of their iTunes Festival show on September 18,
Leto said: “I would love to make a video for every single song on the album, we’re really proud of this album.
However, time is still a factor for the band: “We’ll be touring really until the end of the year. Then next year we’re pretty much booked up until the end of March,” added the LA Rocker. “We’re busy; the short answer is we’re busy.”
30 Seconds To Mars are due to tour the UK this Autumn, starting at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena (November 14).
