ScarJo has no problem winning our hearts in front of the camera, but this beauty has decided to take a shot at working behind the scenes! She will be directing a film adaption of the 1940s novel Summer Crossing by Truman Capote.

The book tells the story of a wealthy 17-year-old girl who refuses to join her family on a summer vacation to France. At home in New York, she winds up falling in love with a Jewish parking attendant. The two marry without telling either of their families, and they must then face the reality of the extreme cultural divide between their families.

The story is very intense, do you think Scarlett has the directing chops to bring this tragedy to the big screen? Let us know in the comments or on twitter!
