If you like movies, you definitely know who Jodie Foster is. She’s won two Oscars as an actor, but in recent years has spent more time directing. With Hotel Artemis, Drew Pearce’s latest film, Jodie Foster is back to acting, playing an old woman, who helps injured criminals in a secret hotel-like hospital.
But did you know she wasn’t officially offered the film?
On having Jodie as his movie’s lead, Drew Pearce was amazed that Foster even entered his hotel in the first place. “The casting of Jodie Foster was incredible, as she actually discovered the script on her own and reached out to us about the role,” he said. “Don’t ask me how she got it– officially it hadn’t even left the office. Which is very in-keeping with the Artemis, to be fair.”
Set in riot-torn, near-future Los Angeles, Hotel Artemis is an original, high-octane action-thriller starring Jodie Foster as the nurse, who runs a secret, members-only hospital for criminals The film also stars Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista.
