France sets Jodie Foster as Cesars prexy

Helmer-thesp will oversee Gallic film awards

Jodie Foster has been tapped prexy of this year’s Cesars, Gaul’s equivalent to the Oscars, by the French Academy of Film Arts and Sciences.

Thesp, who speaks fluent French, is expected to be in the country working on Roman Polanski’s “God of Carnage,” a bigscreen adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s play that starts shooting in early February.

Along with Robert De Niro, who was named last week as jury prexy for the next Cannes film fest, Foster broke through in Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver” and has been admired by French audiences and institutions ever since.

The Cesars will take place Feb. 25 in Paris. Noms will be unveiled Jan. 21.
