It shouldn't be news that Zoe Saldana wants to get behind the camera and direct. We've told you that a few times - most recently in May, when it was announced that she would be directing episodes of Vin Diesel's new web series with Fox, titled The Ropes - an original web series about the lives of bouncers. She also mentioned that she was in the running to direct a film in Montreal, though she was greedy with the details.

But before she hits the big time with feature films, Ms Saldana will make her directorial debut as part of Glamour Reel Moments short film series, which is aimed at increasing the number of female directors in Hollywood.

Zoe will join Olivia Wilde and Eva Longoria, who'll also be making their directorial debuts, working with established industry actors like Bradley Cooper, Malin Ackermann, Justin Long, Aziz Azari, and several others.

Stories? The films will be based on 3 of the many thousands of stories submitted by Glamour magazine's readers, with themes of empowerment, wisdom and beauty standards. .

All 3 shorts will premiere in Los Angeles on October 24 at the Director's Guild Theater, and will then be available on glamourreelmoments.com beginning on October 25.

Past films in the series have screened at major festivals like Sundance, Berlin and Toronto.

Once Zoe's short goes live online in October, you can guarantee we'll share it here!
