Tom Hiddleston plans to direct

Tom Hiddleston wants to direct.

The British actor - who plays antagonist Loki opposite Chris Hemsworth in 'Thor' - would love to make the move into filmmaking in the future and says he even offered to direct the sequel to Marvel's superhero franchise, but was gently turned down.

He told Empire magazine: ''Yes I do [want to direct]. I did ask, half-jokingly, Kevin Feige (head of Marvel) about directing 'Thor 2' and he said, 'Do you have something to show me?' I said no. He said, 'If you made something and showed me, I might consider it'. But it's better for the world that he said no. It would be such a responsibility, but I think I'd enjoy it.''

The 31-year-old star hinted at what kind of film he would like to helm, claiming that movie making can be all the more imaginative and creative with a small budget.

Tom - who has become the new Jameson Empire Done in 60 Seconds ambassador - explained: ''What's become clear is that you don't need that much money to be stylish. Gareth Edwards made 'Monsters' for nothing and that film is amazing. And 'Jaws', they've got three men in a boar for the best section of the film - that's cheap, right? Its not $150 million, is it?''
