Not much is known about District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi thriller Elysium. What has been revealed so far is that it takes place on a distant planet, and that it stars Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley, and Jodie Foster.
Today, Jodie Foster has come forward to say that she actually isn't in Elysium. It was http://movieweb.com/jodie-foster-joins-elysium/announced on January 3rd of this year that the actress had signed onto star in the mystery project. Jodie Foster claims that simply isn't true.
Here is what Jodie Foster had to say about appearing in Elysium:
"Actually, I'm not on that movie! I don't know how that got out there. Well, I'm not not on it, but I'm not booked or involved in a deal yet. People want to jump the gun on Neill because he's the new David Fincher or whatever. And I get why - I love him and District 9 was my favorite film of 2009. But we're just not at that time in the process yet...
"The two couples have a child each, who fight each other on a playground. One of them gets hurt, so the parents go to the others' house to have a negotiation. It all happens in real-time, so it's about an hour and 45 minutes of negotiation between two sets of parents and how it all falls apart. Kind of like Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?, but a little funnier. There's a lot of wit."
