Jodie Foster Set To Star In Hotel Artemis
With first-time director Drew Pearce set to make the film, the movie will star Foster as a character identified only as “The Nurse”. Pearce will also serve as a screenwriter and executive producer on the production through his Point of No Return company:
“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,” said The Ink Factory’s Stephen Cornwell. “Drew’s vision is unique and we can’t wait to see it brought to life by a stellar cast.”
Said Platt, “Jodie and I have enjoyed a long professional and personal relationship that dates back to our days together at Orion where we collaborated on ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and her directorial debut, ‘Little Man Tate.’ She is an accomplished artist in every way, and Adam and I look forward to collaborating with her on Drew’s directorial debut.”
Drew Pearce commented, “Jodie Foster is an icon, pure and simple. She’s an extraordinary artist, and to be working with one of the all-time greats on my first feature as a director is an absolute honor.”
