Drew Pearce—a screenwriter whose past credits include Iron Man 3 and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation—is currently set to make his directorial debut, with Jodie Foster offering an assist. The Oscar-winning actress has signed on to star as “The Nurse” in Pearce’s upcoming film Hotel Artemis. Plot details on the film are scant, but it’s being described as a near-future thriller set “in its own, distinctive crime universe,” presumably standing in stark contrast to the tired, samey crime universe in which the rest of us are forced to live.
“The Nurse” will be Foster’s first on-camera role since Neill Blomkamp’s floppy Elysium in 2013. She’s recently been more focused on directing; Foster’s most recent feature was the George Clooney financial hostage drama Money Monster.
