“Jodie Foster is an icon, pure and simple,” said writer/director/executive producer Pearce. “She’s an extraordinary artist, and to be working with one of the all-time greats on my first feature as a director is an absolute honor.”
“Casting Jodie Foster is a real coup. She is an extraordinary talent and will bring something very special to the film. We are delighted to welcome her to this exciting production,” stated The Ink Factory’s Stephen Cornwell. “Drew’s vision is unique and we can’t wait to see it brought to life by a stellar cast.”
Producer Platt added, “Jodie and I have enjoyed a long professional and personal relationship that dates back to our days together at Orion where we collaborated on The Silence of the Lambs and 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.”
