Renée Zellweger is going to be one busy lady.

Zellweger has just signed on to make her feature directorial debut with 4 ½ Minutes. The film, which is loosely based on the experiences of stand-up comedian Dov Davidoff, will star Johnny Knoxville as a comedian who has to look after the son of a character that Zellweger will be playing. Filming is supposed to start in February.

And following her directorial debut, Zellweger will make her stage debut—on Broadway no less. She will be starring in a stage adaptation of The Hustler, the 1961 film starring Paul Newman and Piper Laurie.  The Hustler focuses on a pool shark and the woman who loves him.

As we had previously linked, Zellweger also has a pilot which she co-wrote and will produce, Cinnamon Girl, in the works at Lifetime.
