Brie Larson to direct debut feature film.

Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson is to direct her first feature film, a comedy called Unicorn Store.

The Room star will also produce and star in the movie, which will begin filming in October, Variety reports.

The film is about a woman called Kit who moves back in with her parents and then receives a mysterious invitation.

Larson previously co-wrote and co-directed short film The Arm, which won the jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012.
Unicorn Store is based on an original screenplay by Samantha McIntyre.

The project was originally to have been directed by Miguel Arteta, with Rebel Wilson set to star, but the timing didn't work out.
