Flight Plan: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jodie Foster is set to star in Flight Plan for the Walt Disney Studios' Touchstone Pictures label. Robert Schwentke is directing, while Brian Grazer is producing through Imagine Entertainment.
The project is described as a Hitchcockian thriller in which a woman's daughter mysteriously disappears while on board a passenger jet. The film will be the first project that Foster has made at Disney in more than 25 years.
Foster's last project for the studio was 1978's Candleshoe, though the Disney film she is most associated with is the 1977 comedy Freaky Friday. While working as a child star at Disney, she also appeared in 1973's "One Little Indian" and 1972's "Napoleon and Samantha," which was her feature film debut.
"Flight Plan" is based on a pitch from Peter Dowling. Billy Ray wrote the current draft.
