After running from The Bounty Hunter (and making many wish she'd have run from the script instead of the ex-husband) Jennifer Aniston is moving onto greener pastures. According to WENN, she's gearing up for her feature directorial debut, having been inspired by Drew Barrymore's recent Whip It.

Aniston said: "I have a project in development I'm going to direct. After you get enough movies under your belt you sit back and go, 'What's next?' It's getting to a time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction." This isn't her first buzzed-about stab at directing. Three years ago, she took part in Glamour's Reel Moments film series, and directed the Robin Wright Penn and Kris Kristofferson short Room 10, about a crabby nurse who throws herself into work to avoid the problems brewing at home. It was a decent piece, and definitely preferable to many of Aniston's big-screen choices.

One can only hope that she's inspired by the kick-ass theme to Barrymore's work (especially since the film struggled to find box office footing), and that it won't mimic her acting and production credits, like the upcoming baster comedy The Switch.
