[Movies] Jake Gyllenhaal Wants To Direct
Jake Gyllenhaal wants to start directing films. The Oscar-nominated actor recently said that while he doesn’t plan to quit acting any time soon, he does want to try and helm his own film projects in the future.
“Well, I do have a number of things that I’m developing,” he said. “That’s probably where the future lies for me – but I’m not going to give up the day job just yet. I’d like to see where it goes.”
In regard to his acting, he said, “You’re always wondering how long this will last. It’s a piece of being an actor. There’s always someone more talented or younger than you. But I also like to write. In years to come, I think that will expand. I won’t just be scrapping for the next job. Maybe I’ll create something for myself.”
