"Actress Olivia Wilde is planning to turn director after signing on to make a movie about a Haitian children's baseball team. The "Tron Legacy" star was among the first celebrity aid volunteers to travel to the Caribbean nation in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, which left Haiti devastated, and she admits the journey was an "amazing" experience.
Now, she's heading back to make a film about a group of young survivors. She tells America's Glamour magazine, "I'm going to Haiti to work on a documentary about a Little League team."

The actress is hoping to turn the trip into an extended vacation, although she's hesitant to leave so soon after purchasing her first home following her marriage split. She says, "I'm thinking about traveling, but I should stay in one place. I just bought a house (in Los Angeles)". Source:

"I think his energies, intelligence and passion could be both of service and servicing to him, as it is to all who are touched by the struggle of the Haitian people", Sean Penn said in a statement Friday. "Charlie is one of the very few public people who cannot be accused of using the media to his own benefit. I would very much like to show my old friend the world of needs on the ground in Haiti, and introduce him and his tremendous wit to our hard working Haitian staff."
