The “Hunger Games” phenomenon is over and a new chapter is being written for Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. The 25-year-old actress is set to add a new title to her resume, director, as she takes on comedy “Project Delirium.”
“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 Lawrence to Entertainment Weekly.
She went on further to describe the comedy saying “it’s based on this article about mental warfare in the ’60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong. 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.”
Not only is Lawrence branching out by directing but, she is also writing a script for another comedy alongside Amy Schumer.
“We play sisters,” Lawrence told The New York Times back in late August about the plot of the film. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us.”
Right now Jennifer Lawrence is filming “Passengers” which also features Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, and Laurence Fishbourne which is being directed by Oscar nominee Morten Tyldum. Lawrence can also be found in the upcoming Christmas flick “Joy.”
