Michelle Rodriguez is preparing to take a break from acting to focus on her career as a writer.

The Avatar star has previously worked on creating a kids' film as well as drafting a remake of 1997 German movie Bandits, and now she has decided to take a hiatus from filming to concentrate on new scripts.

She tells Cosmopolitan for Latinas magazine, "The truth is I'm about to say goodbye to acting for a minute and move behind the camera. I got into this business to write. I've waited 13 years to actually do it... But like now I'm ready, so that means I have to do the cutoff. I'll go into the mountains, and bye-bye everybody."
