Next Up for Jennifer Aniston: Directing!

Jennifer Aniston is used to being in front of the cameras, and now she's going to get another chance to make some magic behind the lens. She's slated to direct a short film about breast cancer for Lifetime's five-part anthology, Project Five.

Four other stars will also get to try the directing thing for the same project, and three of them have been named: Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, and Monster's Patty Jenkins. The fourth gal has yet to be revealed.

Jen is definitely excited about the project -- both the new gig and the film's message. "Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small," she said in a statement (via Us magazine). "We want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts all of our lives, no matter who we are."

This is her second time in the director's chair: She worked behind the camera on 2006's Room 10, starring Robin Wright Penn and Kris Kristofferson.  "After you get enough movies under your belt you sit back and go, 'What's next?'" she said about the gig in a past interview. "It's getting to a time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction."
