The Cara Project is set to document the British star's transition from model to actress.

A film documenting Cara Delevingne's life and career is in the works.

Executives at Revolver Entertainment have acquired The Cara Project, a documentary focusing on the 24-year-old's transition from model to actress, with a view to release it on DVD and video on demand in the U.S. and Canada within the next few months, according to Variety.

Representatives for Revolver, which has previously released Apparition, The Krays: Kill Order and The Magic Flute, will be reportedly selling The Cara Project to broadcasters and home entertainment distributors at MIPCOM, a trade show geared towards the TV industry in Cannes, France and American Film Market, a similar event held in California.

Cara, who began modelling aged 10, was signed to Storm Model Management in 2009 and modelled for many big companies such as Burberry, Chanel and Tom Ford, as well as appearing on magazine covers worldwide and strutting down the catwalk at the big fashion week shows.

Last year (15), she cut ties with her management and announced she would be focusing on acting full-time. Since her debut in 2012 movie Anna Karenina, Cara has starred in The Face of an Angel, Pan, Paper Towns and Suicide Squad, and is due to appear in the upcoming films London Fields, Tulip Fever and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

She revealed to The Times newspaper last year (15) that modelling made her feel "a bit hollow" and gave her stress-related psoriasis.

"It didn't make me grow at all as a human being. And I kind of forgot how young I was... I felt so old," she said. "I was (also), like, fight and flight for months. Just constantly on edge. It is a mental thing as well because if you hate yourself and your body and the way you look, it just gets worse and worse."

She also clarified to The Hollywood Reporter that she wasn't retiring from fashion and would still work in the industry when she had time to do so between films.
