Jennifer Lawrence has revealed she plans to make her directorial debut for a black comedy film based on a true story about mental warfare.

"I have wanted to direct as long as I've wanted to act. I just don't talk about it because I'd rather just do it," the Hunger Games star told EW.

"I've signed on to direct something called Project Delirium. It's based on this article about mental warfare in the '60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong."

Operation Delirium was originally published in The New Yorker magazine and focused on experiments on soldiers during the Cold War.
