Sissy Spacek Takes A Sip Of “Sweet Tea”

After four decades in front of the camera, actress Sissy Spacek is now stepping behind it as she’s set to make her directorial debut on “Sweet Tea” reports The Los Angeles Times.

Based on the 2001 short story collection “Goodbye to the Buttermilk Sky” by Julia Oliver, the 1930’s drama centers on various families and relationships in Depression-era Alabama. Each story dealt with a pivotal moment after a major milestone in the character’s lives like a divorce or the death of a spouse.

C. Gaby Mitchell (“Blood Diamond”) will pen the script and the cast will be announced in the coming days. Spacek is not expected to star herself.
