Directing and 2000s work

Schreiber told The New Yorker in 1999 that "I don't know that I want to be an actor for the rest of my life." For a time in the late nineties, he hoped to produce and direct an adaptation of The Merchant of Venice starring Dustin Hoffman.[4] In that time, Schreiber started writing a screenplay about his relationship with his Ukrainian grandfather, a project he abandoned when, according to The New York Times, "he read Jonathan Safran Foer's hit novel, Everything Is Illuminated, and decided Mr. Foer had done it better".[17] Schreiber's film adaptation of the short story from which the novel originated, which he both wrote and directed, was released in 2005. The film, which starred Elijah Wood, received lukewarm-to-positive reviews,[18] with Roger Ebert calling it "a film that grows in reflection."
.In 2006, Schreiber was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.^ Initially interested in playwriting, Schreiber went on to spend a year studying acting with the faculty from England's Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.
