Jodie Foster’s screen appearances are becoming increasingly rare. While she’s kept busy directing Money Monster and episodes of Orange Is The New Black, we haven’t seen her in a movie since 2013’s Elysium, and it was two years before that that she popped up in Carnage.
However, she’s now booked her next role, as THR reports she’s set to star in Hotel Atermis, the directorial debut of Iran Man 3 screenwriter, Drew Pearce. She will play ‘”The Nurse” in the near-future thriller that is set in its own distinctive crime universe.’ Not much more is known about the plot, although comparisons have been made to Looper, Ex Machina, and Drive.
Producer Stephen Cornwell comments, “Casting Jodie Foster is a real coup. She is an extraordinary talent and will bring something very special to the film. We are delighted to welcome her to this exciting production. Drew’s vision is unique and we can’t wait to see it brought to life by a stellar cast.”
It’s not clear when it might shoot.
