Los Angeles [U.S.A], Oct. 4 (ANI): Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette is all set to don the director's hat for the first time with 'Love Canal'.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 49-year-old actress will step behind the camera for the 1970s-set drama, which centers on a group of working-class housewives who live in the titular upstate New York neighborhood where massive amounts of toxic chemicals have been dumped.

With no training or support, they took on the chemical industry, the government and the president himself.

The movie is based on the Will Battersby documentary 'The Canal'.

Brad Desch wrote the script. Safe House's Tory Tunnell is producing with Battersby, Arquette and 3 Arts' Richard Abate.

It should be noted that Patricia Arquette will be next seen in Showtime series 'Escape at Dannemora' with Benicio del Toro and Paul Dano. (ANI)
