LOS ANGELES, May 6 (UPI) -- Courtney Cox's feature-length directorial debut Just Before I Go boasts comedic structures, dark themes and an ex-husband -- David Arquette.
Cox told Us Weekly that she enjoyed directing Arquette, whom she was married to between 1999 and 2003.
"I love David's performance in the movie," she said.
"It's so nice to direct someone you know so well because you know their go-tos and you know what they fall back on...I really liked working with him. David was really open -- all the actors were -- they really put a lot of trust in me, which was great."
Just Before I Go follows a man who decides to end it all after his wife left him, but first visits his hometown seeking revenge on his childhood bullies. Turns out life is hard for them, too.
The dramedy debuted Friday across all online platforms including iTunes and Amazon Instant Video. The Friends star previously directed a short film for TV called Talhotblond and several episodes of her TBS series Cougar Town before deciding to pursue more substantial projects.
"I have no idea what I want to do next, but I want it to be a character piece of some sort," she told Us about her next venture. "I don't know if it'll be a comedy or a drama -- I also love thrillers! I'm open."
