WOODY Harrelson is set to make his directorial debut with a new film called Lost in London.

The in-demand actor is currently promoting his latest film, LBJ, in which he plays former US president Lyndon Baines Johnson in the Rob Reiner-directed political drama.

In an interview with Screen Daily, the actor revealed that he will move to the capital to direct the project, which he is also writing.

As yet, no further details concerning the content of the film have been revealed.

However, Harrelson did go on to reveal that he has been forced to drop out of the George Clooney project Suburbicon (which is scripted by the Coen brothers) in order to work on Reiner’s next project, Shock and Awe, which will find Harrelson playing a journalist who questions George W Bush’s linkage of Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida.

Harrelson’s work in LBJ won positive reviews when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, with some critics predicting that the actor could land an Oscar nomination for his central performance.
