Newton turns screenwriter
Actress Thandie Newton is to step away from the camera to try her hand at writing screenplays.
And Newton insists she could be tempted to become a full-time writer - because the work schedule suits her busy lifestyle as a mum of two.
She says of her first movie, "It's a comedy feature film. It's been really nice to do that: be at home, be around the kids. It's just a really nice lifestyle - I've been doing other, smaller jobs to supplement it and so on.
"Now I see why Ol's been doing it for so long, it's absolutely great."
