Jodie Foster to Direct Rosemarie DeWitt in ‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Episode

Jodie Foster Direct Rosemarie DeWitt 'Black

Jodie Foster is set to direct a season-four episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror,” with Rosemarie DeWitt starring. The new season of the science-fiction anthology will begin production later this year and premiere in 2017.

Netflix last year ordered 12 additional episodes of the series from executive producers and showrunners Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones, splitting the order up into two six-episode seasons. Season three premieres Friday. Previous seasons have featured stars such as Jon Hamm, Hayley Atwell, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jessica Findlay-Brown.

An anthology in the vein of “The Twilight Zone,” telling dark stories steeped in technology, “Black Mirror” is written primarily by Brooker. The first two seasons premiered on the U.K.’s Channel 4 before later migrating to Netflix.

“I’ve always been a fan of one-off, quirky, weird stories you’d see on ‘The Twilight Zone’ or ‘Tales of the Unexpected,’” Brooker recently told Variety. “Also, the BBC would put on one-off plays that were often controversial or incredibly depressing. I missed those shows where you would run to someone and say, ‘This guy was the last man on earth, and he broke his glasses, and it was amazing!’”

On Oscar-winning actress and the director of films “Money Monster,” “The Beaver,” “Home for the Holidays” and “Little Man Tate,” Foster has previously directed episodes of Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” and “House of Cards.” DeWitt will next be seen alongside Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in the feature film “La La Land.”

    Men Against Fire is called so because of the line in the episode explaining that soldiers in WWII refused to fire, or misfired at the ‘enemy’. It’s referenced towards the end of the episode.

    The fact you missed this confirms why I disagree with most of your analysis of BM season 3.
