Jodie Foster to helm ‘Money Monster’

IM Global, Daniel Dubiecki to produce indie drama

The Beaver” helmer Jodie Foster is attached to direct the indie drama “Money Monster” for IM Global and Daniel Dubiecki’s the Allegiance Theater, IM Global CEO Stuart Ford announced on Thursday.

Written by Alan DiFiore (“Grimm”) and Jim Kouf (“National Treasure”), story follows a TV personality whose insider trading tips have made him the money guru of Wall Street. When a viewer who lost all of his family’s money on a bad tip from the money expert decides to hold him hostage on air, ratings soar as the entire country tunes into this media frenzy.

Daniel Dubiecki, who received a best picture Oscar nomination for “Up in the Air,” will produce the pic, for which IM Global will handle financing and sales. Filmmakers will go out to cast immediately, as production is skedded to start early next year.

In addition to Mel Gibson starrer “The Beaver,” Foster previously directed “Home for the Holidays” and “Little Man Tate.” The two-time Oscar-winning actress recently starred in Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” and will next be seen opposite Matt Damon in Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi epic “Elysium,” which Sony will release on March 1.

Foster is repped as a director by UTA, and her attorney is Matt Saver.
