Jodie Foster is ceding the director’s chair for her next project. We haven’t seen Foster in an onscreen capacity since 2013’s Elysium, but she’ll move back in front of the camera for Hotel Artemis, a thriller that takes place in the near future and “is set in its own distinctive crime universe,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Foster will play a character simply called The Nurse, and it sounds like she’s going to have a lot on her plate if she’s dealing with a whole universe of crime around her. Artemis will be the directorial debut from Drew Pearce, who also wrote the original screenplay. Let’s start hoping the impending press tour results in Kate McKinnon dusting off her excellent Foster impression on Saturday Night Live.
