Jodie Foster is headed back behind the camera.
She’s going to be directing the indie thriller, “Money Moster,” her first directorial effort since “The Beaver,” which starred the now infamous Mel Gibson.
According to the guardian report, “Money Monster” will be a filmed as a “live-on-TV hostage drama in which a share tipster becomes the victim of a viewer burned by one of his recommendations.”
There is no word on who will be casted in the film but there is a feeling a few stars might be involved in the project. The reason for that is the film is being produced through the film finance company, IM Global.
I’m sure Foster has learned her lesson from her “Beaver” experience and be a little more careful with who is casted in this film..
Any chance of success for the film was marred by Gibson’s bad press that consisted of a publicly released tape of him swearing at his ex-girlfriend.
“Money Monster” is going to Foster’s fourth directed film. Before “The Beaver,” she directed “Home for the Holidays” in 1995. That’s a 16-year period between directed films. The first film she directed was “Little Man Tate” in 1991.
For those wondering if Foster’s giving up on the acting portion of her career? Don’t stress, her acting career is fine. She got numerous award nominations for her part in Roman Polanski’s “Carnage.”
There is no release date set for “Money Monster.”
