Drew Barrymore is now a multihyphenate, as the actress can now be called a Actress-Producer-Director. ‘Whip It’  was her first feature behind the camera and now she’s at it again – this time for Warner Bros – who hooked her up with their drama ‘The End.’

Barrymore will be directing the apocalyptic drama, says The Hollywood Reporter. The script was written by Aron Eli Coleite which centers on a few people as they come to make amends and finish whatever they need to before the apocalypse. Even though this is a drama dealing with a heavy subject matter, it’s in no way supposed to be a “Debbie Downer” of a film. In fact it’s been pitched as being uplifting.

First off, we’d like to express our concern for the studio’s constant fascination with the end of the world. We all know that we’re not going to be plunged into eternal darkness once December passes, Mayans be darned. On top of that, why is everyone making one end-of-the-world movie after another? After ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’ tanked, what’s the appeal?

What say the rest of you? Do you think that Hollywood should continue to make end of the world pictures that don’t feature big action scenes?
