In an interview with Screen Rant (via Fightful), Dave Bautista revealed that he is hoping to direct his first film by 2025, and has wanted to do so for years. Bautista’s acting career is still going strong and he’ll appear in Dune: Part Two next month.

He said: “I’ve wanted to direct for years. For a while, I was looking for a project that I could direct because it’s got to be very contained. I’m not looking to be a blockbuster director. I want to direct what I like. As a fan, I really am drawn to indie dramas. I like inspiring stories. I like deep emotional stories. For years I looked for a script, the right one for me, and I finally just came up with my own idea. So now I’m searching for writers but I will. My plan is to sometime in 2025 direct my first film.
