Jodie Foster Developing Sci-Fi Thriller

Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster recently took another crack at directing with the Mel Gibson starrer The Beaver, which just premiered at the SXSW Film Festival.

The LA Times caught up with the genre favorite, who has starred in everything from Lambs to Panic Room, Contact and Taxi Driver, who revealed that she’s developing a new sci-fi thriller.

There’s a family element to it, but it’s much more a genre movie,” Foster said. “I’d like to do that ’cause that’s a world I live in as an actor but I’ve never really gone to as a director. I’d still have to have all the other stuff in a film. It can’t just be, `There’s a bad guy, there’s a monster.’ It has to have all the other stuff too.

Next up, Foster stars in District 9 director Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium. Who knows what kind of tricks or inspiration she’ll gain?
