Following Jodie Foster's Little Man Tate model, Renee Zellweger is pushing into acting-directing by way of single motherhood and a dysfunctionally smart child.

THR reports she'll make her directorial debut with the comedy 4½ Minutes, in which she'll star alongside Johnny Knoxville and a precocious kid who will not be Jonathan Lipnicki this time. Based on the real life and comedy of Dov Davidoff, the film will see Knoxville playing the stand-up's surrogate, a "commitment-phobic, train-wreck comedian" who ends up taking a job as caretaker to the genius child of Zellweger. Production is expected to begin in February and at last reveal Zellweger's directorial voice, which evidence shows will probably be a forced, theatrical British accent.
