Olivia Wilde has made it pretty clear that's she's launching a new directorial project with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In a few Instagrams on Thursday, the actress confirmed that she's taking the director's chair once again and helming the clip for "Dark Necessities," off the band's forthcoming album.

This isn't the first time Wilde has directed a music video. In March, she debuted her work for Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros' "No Love Like Yours," shot entirely on an iPhone. Check it:

In March, she explained her love for music videos to Billboard:

"I grew up in the MTV generation. I spent hours watching videos as a kid. Hours! [Video directors] like Mark Romanek and Spike Jonze really affected my taste, in film as well as music."
