Jodie Foster to Star in Crime Thriller ‘Hotel Artemis’

Jodie Foster will star in Drew Pearce’s feature directorial debut, the near-future crime thriller “Hotel Artemis.”

Simon and Stephen Cornwell are producing for The Ink Factory, which will also finance. Pearce, whose writing credits include “Iron Man 3” and “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation,” will direct from his own script. The logline is under wraps.

Adam Siegel and Marc Platt are producing for Marc Platt Productions. The Ink Factory’s Becky Sloviter is overseeing, and Pearce will executive produce through his Point of No Return production banner.

“Casting Jodie Foster is a real coup,” Stephen Conrwell said. “She is an extraordinary talent and will bring something very special to the film. We are delighted to welcome her to this exciting production. Drew’s vision is unique and we can’t wait to see it brought to life by a stellar cast.”

Platt noted that he worked with Foster on “The Silence of the Lambs” — for which she won the best actress Oscar — and on her directorial debut, “Little Man Tate.” “She is an accomplished artist in every way, and Adam and I look forward to collaborating with her on Drew’s directorial debut,” he added.

Foster also won an Academy Award for her performance in “The Accused.” Her recent credits include “The Beaver” for Summit Entertainment, which she also directed, and “Elysium” for Sony and TriStar Pictures. Foster most recently helmed “Money Monster,” which premiered at Cannes and was distributed by Sony.

Foster is represented by ICM Partners and attorney Matt Saver. Pearce is represented by WME and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

The Ink Factory and Marc Platt Productions recently collaborated on Ang Lee’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” which Sony Pictures released worldwide this month.

But he’s also playing a breathless teenage kid on the inside, and [...]
