28 Nov – Transitioning from acting to directing is just one of the things Hollywood stars tend to do, and now actress Jennifer Lawrence too is readying herself as an actress-turned-director.
The 25-year-old admitted that she wants to try her hand in directing a comedy, according to Entertainment Weekly, saying that she is now ready for it.
"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," said the actress.
Lawrence then revealed she has signed on to direct a dark comedy called "Project Delirium", which is based on the same name article published in 2012 by The New Yorker.
The article by Raffi Khatchadourian focuses on Colonel James S. Ketchum's warfare experiments on over 5,000 U.S. soldiers during the Cold War.
The Academy Award-winning actress previously mentioned her intention to direct last year while at the Golden Globes, saying, "My passion for directing happened at the same time it did for acting on my first movie. So I would love to direct – but I don't want to suck."
While fans wait for her directorial debut, the actress can be seen next in 2016 movies, "X-Men: Apocalypse" and "Passengers", the latter in which she will star alongside Chris Pratt.
Lawrence can currently be seen on the big screen as Katniss Everdeen – the role that won her the 2015 Guinness World Record for highest-grossing action heroine – in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2".
