At only 25-years-old Jennifer Lawrence has already accomplished more than most actresses twice her age. One thing she hasn't done, but has expressed interest in, is moving behind the camera as director. Well now she's revealed to Entertainment Weekly her plans to direct a film titled Project Delirium. She says...
“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. 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.”
The article she's talking about appears to "Operation Delirium" which appeared in New Yorker back in 2012. Basically it's about the Cold War-era testing of nerve gas and LSD on American soldiers, which doesn't sound like a comedy but one never knows.
Lawrence has already proven she's a threat to do just about anything. She can act, sing, and fall over inanimate objects with the best of them. She's also been very outspoken about actress salaries compared to their male counterparts, and seems to be making a point to change how things work in Hollywood. A big part of that is creating more projects for female directors and stars. Her next film, Joy, opens next month is already being eyed as another potential Oscar nomination for her. She also has a comedy she's writing alongside Amy Schumer, but who knows when that will be ready.
