Jodie Foster Getting Ready to Take a Stab at Directing Sci-Fi Thriller
Oscar winner Jodie Foster usually finds herself dabbling in family dramas or quasi-action films. For her next project she's ready to try something a bit different.
According to The L.A. Times her next directing gig will be making a sci-fi thriller.
“There’s a family element to it, but it’s much more a genre movie,” says Foster. “I’d like to do that ’cause that’s a world I live in as an actor but I’ve never really gone to as a director. I’d still have to have all the other stuff in a film. It can’t just be, ‘There’s a bad guy, there’s a monster.’ It has to have all the other stuff too.”
Foster said the project is still in the script stage. “It’s not anywhere close to being ready. I don’t write. I rewrite, but I don’t write, so that always puts me at the mercy of some enormous talent that comes out of the woodwork that somehow has the same obsessions as me.”
Look for more on this one soon.
