Mark Ruffalo to Direct First Feature Film
Actor Mark Ruffalo reportedly is planning to make his feature directorial debut with Sympathy for Delicious, a film about a paralyzed L.A. disc jockey.
Ruffalo has starred in the movies You Can Count on Me, In the Cut, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Zodiac and Reservation Road.
Variety.com said Ruffalo will direct James Franco and Chris Thornton in Delicious, a film Thornton wrote about a deejay who has the power to heal others but not himself.
Ruffalo, who will also play a role in the movie, is to begin shooting the project this fall in Los Angeles, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.
