Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Jennifer Lawrence has plans to make the jump from actor to director. Lawrence has stated that she already has her first directorial project lined up. A project titled “Project Delirium” based on an article about chemical warfare during the Cold War that appeared in The New Yorker in 2012.
Many actors tend to transition to director, sometimes it turns out fantastic, other times not so much. Lawrence is certainly a talented actress, one of the best, but that does not mean that talent translates elsewhere. Until I see what she brings to the table as a director I cannot, and will not, make wild assertions about Jennifer Lawrence, the director.
As reported a few months ago that Lawrence and Amy Schumer were writing a screenplay together. Assuming that the Lawrence/Schumer project comes first (it very well might), it will provide some insight into the talents that Lawrence has outside acted.
