Set in its own distinctive crime universe, "Hotel Artemis" is based on an original script by Pearce.
“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,” The Ink Factory’s Stephen Cornwell said. “Drew’s vision is unique and we can’t wait to see it brought to life by a stellar cast.”
Platt said, “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 said, "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.""Foster has won two Academy Awards for her performances in "The Accused" and "The Silence of the Lambs."
Foster is represented by ICM Partners’ Joe Funicello and attorney Matt Saver.
