Jodie Foster will star in Drew Pearce’s “Hotel Artemis,” TheWrap has learned.
Marking Pearce’s directorial debut, “Hotel Artemis” is based on his original screenplay. Pearce previously wrote “Iron Man 3” and “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.”
Foster is set to play a character called “The Nurse” in the crime thriller.
Simon and Stephen Cornwell are producing for The Ink Factory, which is also financing the film. Adam Siegel and Marc Platt are producing for Marc Platt Productions. The Ink Factory’s Becky Sloviter is overseeing the project, with Pearce executive producing through his Point of No Return production banner.
“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 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.”
Foster has won two Academy Awards for “The Accused” and “The Silence of the Lambs.” Her other recent credits include “The Beaver,” “Elysium” and “Money Monster,” which she directed.
The actress is represented by ICM Partners and Viewpoint.
