Foster will return behind the camera for her first effort since "The Beaver" with Showtime's "Angie's Body." Penned by Rob Fresco ("Heroes," "Crossing Jordan") the series adds a unique twist to the organized crime drama, and will center on a deadly woman who runs her own syndicate, and those are the only details so far. Foster doesn't direct often, and thus far her choices have been interesting from the underrated drama "Little Man Tate," the Christmas comedy "Home for the Holidays" and Mel Gibson vehicle "The Beaver." But perhaps none of those are as intriguing as her very first gig behind the camera, helming a 1988 episode of "Tales From The Darkside" entitled "Do Not Open This Box" (watch below). Certainly, the television landscape has changed a lot since then.
The Showtime gig brings her back to the network where she produced "The Baby Dance," starring Laura Dern and Stockard Channing in 1998. Not word yet on when "Angie's Body" will roll but it will need to cast up first. Foster will next be seen at a theater near you in Neill Blomkamp's "Elysium." [Deadline]
