Kyra the Director

Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick – who is in this fall’s buzzy The Edge of Seventeen, playing Hailee Steinfelds mom – is gonna call the shots now.

It was announced this week that the actress is all set to pop her cherry as a director, with Story of a Girl, a made-for-Lifetime adaptation of the eponymous 2008 novel by Sara Zarr that she is also producing.

And guess who’s co-starring in the project?

Her husband, Kevin Bacon.

Keepin’ it tight and in the family, huh.

Story of a Girl will tell the, ahem, coming-of-age story of a 13-year-old girl who must confront all kinds of unpleasantness after a sex tape she makes with her older brother’s BFF goes viral. Because kids.

The drama and the slut-shaming and the strain the incident creates at home get so bad, gf still has to deal with all of it three years later.

Betcha something gives.
