Now that she's conquered Playboy, former rebellious teen-turned-model-turned-actress Alison Eastwood has decided to follow in the footsteps of her father Clint and direct a film. Back in June, we told you how Eastwood would make her directorial debut with a film called Rails & Ties, though not much was known about it except for the fact that it opens up with a woman sitting in a car alongside her child. Oh, and I should also mention that said car is positioned on some railroad tracks, awaiting the next train to come by and, well, bye bye.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, it looks like Kevin Bacon and Marcia Gay Harden are in talks to star in the film, which we're told will revolve around a suicidal mother who'd like to check out via a horrific train accident ... and she's taking her 9 year-old son with her. Bacon will play the train engineer, with Harden chugging along as his wife. This territory is somewhat familiar to Bacon, as he recently made his feature directorial debut with a film called Loverboy, based off the book about a mother who obsesses over her son and, in the end ... let's just say the two are very similar. Production will begin early next year.

So, what do you think about the younger Eastwood's directing ambitions? Do you think she'll do a good job?
