It seems that at some point in every actor’s career, they want to have a go at directing. Just the other day it was revealed Joseph Gordon-Levitt was getting behind the camera, and now ScreenDaily reports that X-Men 3 and The Messenger’s Ben Foster is following suit.
There’s no news on the plot of the drama, but it could be ready to shoot this summer. Oren Moverman is on-board to produce, who worked with Foster on both The Messenger and Rampart.
Foster may have a tendency to go over the top occasionally as an actor (Alpha Dog being the prime example), but that’s largely because he’s always trying to push himself and explore new territory. It’s an attitude that should help him as a director, and hopefully Moverman’s presence will help keep him on track.
