Actress Julia Stiles is set to make her directorial debut after editors at style magazine Elle gave her the OK to shoot a short film she's written. The Mona Lisa Smile star, a Columbia University graduate, was inspired to pen the screenplay for RAVING after reading an article in Elle about a woman's romance with an older man. The 20-minute movie will star Zooey Deschanel and will be released as part of a new Elle film project on the internet and mobile phones. The film will premiere on Elle.com.
