I like Mark Rufallo. I think he’s one of the most underrated actors out there. Variety announced today that he’s inked a deal to direct his first movie.

According to Collider:

Written by Chris Thornton, "Delicious" is the story of a paralyzed DJ named Delicious who discovers he has the power to heal the sick – with his own injury a notable exception. Ruffalo will play a Jesuit priest who helps Delicious come to terms with his ability, while James Franco plays a rock musician out to exploit the DJ/healer. Production will begin this fall in Los Angeles.
