Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) will make his feature directing debut with Up and Away, a German-language romantic comedy set around a dating game-show. The Los Angeles Times reports the Austrian actor, who’s previously directed German television programs, co-wrote the script and may also play a supporting role in the film. Before he gets behind the camera for Up and Away, however, Waltz will appear onscreen in The  Green Hornet and film Water for Elephants.
