Foster may yet dine on ‘Lambs’

Thesp won't decide until final draft of script

While Jodie Foster may cringe at the portrayal of FBI agent Clarice Starling in Thomas Harris’ novel “Hannibal,” the Oscar winner has not refused to take on Starling in the sequel to “The Silence of the Lambs,” contrary to several media reports.

According to Jennifer Allen, Foster’s PMK spokeswoman, the actress “won’t make a decision until there is a final script.”

Reports published Tuesday maintained that Foster reveals, in an upcoming W magazine interview, that she has refused to star in the sequel.

It’s understood that in the interview, Foster was giving her reaction to Harris’ novel and not the film adaptation, which Universal insiders say she has not yet read. David Mamet took the first stab at the adaptation, but U subsequently hired Steve Zaillian to try his hand at the high-profile project.
