LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is planning to make her big-screen, directorial debut with Project Delirium, but doesn't plan to act in the film.
Deadline reported the movie is based on a 2002 New Yorker magazine article penned by Raffi Khatchadourian about the military career of Army Col. James S. Ketchum, a psychiatrist involved in experiments in the 1960s and '70s using psychochemicals that temporarily incapacitated the minds of soldiers in the field.
The film is being financed by 2929, with Lawrence and her partner Justine Ciarrocchi producing with Todd Wagner and Ben Cosgrove. No start date has been announced yet.
Lawrence, 25, won her Academy Award for her work in Silver Linings Playbook. She recently wrapped up her run in the four-blockbuster series The Hunger Games and will soon be seen in the film Joy.
