Demi and Rumer are making a movie

Demi Moore is to make her directorial debut, with a movie starring her daughter.

The actor will go behind the camera for Streak, a short film featuring 20-year-old Rumer Willis – Demi’s eldest child with ex-husband Bruce Willis – and the 45-year-old star thinks the experience will bring them closer.

“The great thing is I'm seeing her mature and operate as a complete professional," he said. "And it's giving us, I think, another opportunity to connect in a totally different way."

The House Bunny star agreed with her mother, adding: "I think other times when your mom's telling you what to do, you're like, 'God Mom, come on!' But when the creative side kind of comes with it, I've been really impressed and it's a really interesting thing to see."

Streak is part of Glamour magazine’s Reel Moments venture, with the films written by, and based on the lives of, readers of the publication.

Three short films are being made, with Demi joined in the director’s chair by actress Courteney Cox and screenwriter Kiwi Smith, who are also undertaking the role for the first time.

Streak – which will also star Brittany Snow, Madeline Zima and Sarah Wright – follows a college senior whose brave act leads to her finally accepting herself.
