She’s been spending more time singing than acting lately, but Jada Pinkett Smith hasn’t lost her passion for making movies — in fact, for her next project, she’s going to write and direct one.

According to FilmJerk, the actress and singer — most recently seen with Don Cheadle and Adam Sandler in this year’s Reign Over Me — has signed on as writer-director for The Human Contract. Keeping things in the family, Will Smith is listed as a producer; his company, Overbrook Entertainment, is helping finance the production, which has not announced any studio or distributor involvement.

The synopsis, from the article:

Julian Wright, a charming and mega-successful businessman…hides a secret from the rest of the world which tears his soul apart every day. With his personal life in shambles, Julian will find himself willing to travel down the rabbit hole, as it were, when he meets Michael Reed, a gorgeous stranger who entices Julian to forget his rigid corporate world and try a more bohemian lifestyle, a decision that will not only affect his own life but those of his boss and co-workers, as well as inspire his half-sister Rita to re-examine her life with her abusive husband.

Filming is scheduled to begin November 12 in Los Angeles.
