It was just announced that the 43-year-old Scottish actor will be making his directorial debut in the upcoming film American Pastoral.
“It’s a great privilege to be working with Lakeshore on Phillip Roth’s astounding novel ‘American Pastoral,’” Ewan shared in a statement. “I’ve wanted to direct for years and wanted to wait until I found a story that I ‘had’ to tell, and in this script I knew I had found that story.”
Lakeshore CEO Tom Rosenberg added, “Ewan’s talent goes far beyond his on-screen work, and we’re excited to be working with a director who is as passionate as we are about telling the story of American Pastoral.”
