Alicia Keys is reportedly looking to add the title of director to her many credits. According to Deadline, the 30 year old singer/actress will direct a short film as a part of Lifetime’s original movie “Project Five.” An anthology of five short stories that explore the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives, Alicia will be joined by Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Patty Jenkins.
Aniston will serve as the movie’s producer, along with “Friends” creator Marta Kauffman.
“Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention,” Aniston said in a statement. “Otherwise, our goals are small — we want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts ALL of our lives, no matter who we are.”
Kauffman supervised the writing of the five individual scripts by TV veterans Stephen Godshaux, Jill Gordon, Howard Morris, Deirdre O’Connor and Wendy West. A fifth director will be announced soon.
