Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games) has been acting for over 30 years now, but he has almost always been in front of the camera. Now, aged 55, he is stepping behind it for the first time, with news arriving via Screen Daily that he is set to direct his first feature, entitled Lost In London.
Speaking to Screen Daily, Harrelson offered very little about the project, except to say that it would be filmed and set in the UK capital. The actor was speaking at the Zurich Film Festival, promoting Rob Reiner's (The Bucket List) new biopic LBJ in which he plays former US president Lyndon B. Johnson.
There is no word on who has written the script, who will star, or whether Harrelson will appear in front of the camera as well as behind it. He has some pedigree in writing and directing on the stage, including some experience on the West End.
In the shorter term, Harrelson is starring in another Rob Reiner film, Shock And Awe, about a group of journalists during the George W. Bush presidency. "We're playing journalists who wrote important articles about the absurdity of associating Saddam Hussein with Osama Bin Laden or trying to connect him to 9/11," said Harrelson.
In the meantime, watch this space.
