Latifah wants to direct sci-fi

The star, real name Dana Owens, has carved out a career for herself in Hollywood starring in and producing movies like upcoming romantic comedy Just Wright.

But she admits she’s holding out on taking charge of her first project behind the camera until she finds the ideal futuristic film.

She tells WENN, “I would love to do sci-fi, I’m a Trekkie! Something in sci-fi, maybe a comic, graphic novel. Something visually creative – I don’t know what though.”
