Jennifer Lawrence is set to venture behind the camera for the first time, with the Oscar winner telling Entertainment Weekly that she has signed on to make her directorial debut with Project Delirium.
"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," states Lawrence. "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."
Project Delirium is based on an article in The New Yorker entitled Operation Delirium, which looked at medical experiments carried out by military doctors on soldiers during the Cold War.
