Actor Colman Domingo who was last seen in Netflix film Rustin is set to make his directorial debut soon, the actor confirmed while in conversation with Collider.

When the actor was asked about his goals he could achieve in the near future, he said, "I do. I do. I can't say it just yet, but I'm going to make my directorial debut for a feature film, playing an American icon." The actor further mentioned that he co-wrote the script and will be a "movie musical".

"I don't know if I'm gonna lose my mind or what because I'm like, 'Okay, I'm going from my first leading role in a feature film to now slash, slash, slash, slash doing everything in the world.' So I might have to get some pointers and tips from Bradley Cooper and people like that to say, 'Am I crazy?' But I actually feel like I'm up for the task because I know that I see it visually, I understand it dramaturgically, and I feel like it's like a painting. I want to do the whole painting, and I can be in it at the same time," he added.

Meanwhile in Rustin, Colman played the role of Bayard Rustin, who served as an advisor to Martin Luther King Jr, and openly admitted that he was gay. The actor will also be seen in Drive Away Dolls.
