Actress Bryce Dallas Howard will make
her debut as a feature film director with "Sorta Like a Rock Star".
According to a source, Bryce has been roped in to direct the film -- an adaptation of the Matthew Quick novel "Sorta Like a Rock Star", reports variety.com.
Bryce has directed a handful of short films as well as a music video starring Lily Collins, but this would mark her full-length debut.
The film is currently in early development and without a distributor, but sources say if the film moves forward, she would direct it.
Originally set up at Fox Searchlight, the story follows an optimistic high school student, Amber Appleton, who secretly lives in her mom's school bus during her senior year after an altercation at home.
Best known for her acting in films like "The Help" and "Jurassic World", Bryce, whose father is Oscar-winning director Ron Howard, has always had an interest in following in her father's footsteps.
