I MovieWeb's intervju med skådespelaren Denzel Whitaker - som man kan se i nya "Abduction" - under DVD-releasen av "X-men: First Class" berättar han att han har blivit intresserad av att regissera, men att han själv inte skulle vilja medverka som skådespelare i sin första film. Istället skulle han vilja jobba med Josh Hutcherson.

Denzel Whitaker talks "Abduction" & directing

When I asked what was next for him, the 21-year-old actor revealed that he has taken an interest in directing.

"I'm actually doing some directing right now. Earlier this year I took off to do some music videos and I'm putting together some shorts with a company I just formed called Mononoke Entertainment. Also, I'm going to direct my first feature, hopefully by the end of next year. We're going through the second revisions of the script right now. I didn't co-write it, but I am heavily involved. I am very close with the writer, so, every step of the way, I'm there. It's called 'Killing Familiar'. It's about these three teenagers who accidentally manslaughter somebody. We sort of see the trials and tribulations of how it breaks down their relationships."

Despite his heavy involvement in this directorial endeavor, Denzel Whitaker said he doesn't want to act in his directorial debut, although he does have an actor in mind to star in "Killing Familiar".

"I don't want to act in it, for my first project out. I'd rather craft it the best I can and leave the acting to the side. But, I'm interested in Josh Hutcherson. We're going to reach out to him in a few months. The funny thing is, he likes NASCAR and that's what our character likes, so he might see himself in the character."
