Jodie Foster says she wants to quit acting and start directing full-time. She finished her work on the Mel Gibson dramedy ‘The Beaver’ and is now eyeing a science-fiction film.
She says: “I’ve reached that point where I don’t want to act very much anymore. I am much more interested in holding off on acting, after 45 years as an actor. It’s a long period of time to do the same thing. [Her new science fiction project] There’s a family element to it, but it’s much more a genre movie. I’d like to do that because that’s a world I live in as an actor but I’ve never really gone to as a director. It’s not anywhere close to being ready. [I don’t write], so that always puts me at the mercy of some enormous talent that comes out of the woodwork that somehow has the same obsessions as me.”
However, Foster is set to appear in the film ‘Elysium’.
