Jennifer Lawrence is ready to try her hand at directing and already has already signed on for her first project.
“I’ve signed on to direct something called Project Delirium,” the actress told Entertainment Weekly. “It’s based on this article about mental warfare in the ’60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong.”
The star admits that she’s been wanting to dip her toe into the directing pool for some time, but only recently felt “ready” to do it. “It’s funny, I’ve wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that. If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn’t have been ready. Now I actually feel ready.”
Lawrence also told EW that she wants to direct a comedy at some point. “I’d also like to direct a comedy,” she said. “I have wanted to direct as long as I’ve wanted to act. I just don’t talk about it because I’d rather just do it.”
It seems like she’s on her way doing just that, as she’s currently writing a comedy with Amy Schumer. “We play sisters,” Lawrence previously told the NYT.
