Ewan McGregor to make directorial debut
Actor Ewan McGregor has signed up to make his directorial debut with the big screen adaptation of Philip Roth’s 1997 novel American Pastoral.

Salt filmmaker Phillip Noyce was originally slated to helm the project but when he stepped down as director, MCGregor, who was already attached to star in the film, decided to ambitiously take on the project, reported Deadline.

“I’ve wanted to direct for years and wanted to wait until I found a story that I had to tell and in this script I knew I had found that story.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge of being on both sides of the camera, especially knowing I’ll be working with Jennifer (Connolly) and Dakota (Fanning),” MCGregor said in a statement.

The book follows the fortunes of businessman Seymour ‘Swede’ Levov (MCGregor).
