After having accrued nearly every acting accolade possible, Jennifer Lawrence says she will soon be making her way to the director’s chair.
“I’ve signed on to direct something called Project Delirium — it’s based on this article about mental warfare in the ’60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong,” said Lawrence in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, which picked the actress as their Entertainer of the Year.
Project Delirium is based off a 2012 New Yorker piece titled “Operation Delirium” by Raffi Khatchadorian.
“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,” said the Oscar-winning actress. “Now I actually feel ready.”
Lawrence has also announced that she and Trainwreck comedian Amy Schumer are co-writing a screenplay, where the two will play sisters.
The actress recently released the final film in the Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay – Part 2, which hit theaters on Nov. 20 and has already grossed $255 million in the worldwide box office.
Lawrence will next be seen in the David O. Russell film, Joy, which is to be released on Christmas Day.
