Scottish actor Ewan McGregor has shelved his feature directorial debut due to a rival movie in production according to The Times of India.
McGregor had been researching a 1968 yacht race to be the subject of his first effort. He tells Nylon Guys magazine - "My wife [production designer Eve Mavrakis] was going to design it, I wasn't going to be in it. And then I found out someone else is doing it. I was gutted."
Still, McGregor intends to try again sometime down the road - "I think it would be so fascinating and satisfying. But I don't pretend... I would be starting right at the bottom."
