Adding to her CV! Jennifer joins the actress-turned-director crew


Jennifer Lawrence is already an accomplished actress and screenwriter; but now J Law is set to become a director too. 

The Hunger Games actress has officially signed up to her first directing project, and it looks like it's going to be a good one. 

She told Entertainment Weekly, "It's based on an 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."

She also told the EW that the aspiration has been a secret of hers for a long time. 

"I've 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."
