Coming Soon reports that William H. Macy will be directing his first feature film next year. Macy was speaking during promotion of his new film Edmond, based on the David Mamet’s play of the same name.

“I’m going to direct a film called Keep Coming Back,” he told Coming “It stars Salma Hayek, but she’s the only name I can name. This is a real movie, it’s an indie.”

“I read the script by Will Alditch, and I saw it in my mind’s eye so clearly,” he explained. “They sent me the script asking if I wanted to play the father or this internist, and they were both wonderful roles. Mostly, I was so excited about the story and the way Will writes. It’s so witty and adult and smart, and yet kinda broad and outrageous. I just called him up and said, ‘Yeah, I liked it a lot. Who’s directing?’ At that point, Will was going to direct it himself, but he said, ‘If you want to direct it, you direct it.’ I’ll act a small role… about four scenes.”
