Brie Larson To Direct Debut Feature Film

T​he Oscar-winning actress is using her acting experience to step behind the camera

If you've seen Room – the gripping portrayal of a young mother held captive with her five-year-old son Jack that saw Brie Larson win an Oscar earlier this year – you'll know she isn't scared of pushing herself to the limit.

So it makes sense the 26-year-old Californian is now taking a turn in the director's chair to make her directorial debut with independent comedy, Unicorn Store.

As director and also star of the film, Unicorn Store will centre on a woman called Kit who lives with her parents and receives a mysterious invitation to test what she understands of adulthood.

Vague or what?

But this isn't the first time the Captain Marvel star has gone behind the camera.  

In 2012, the Trainwreck star co-wrote and co-directed short film The Arm which won the jury prize at Sundance Film Festival.

The future is bright for Brie.
