George Clooney is set to star in Money Monster, a thriller directed by Jodie Foster.
Money Monster will follow a TV show host (Clooney) who gets taken hostage by a gunman while on-air and is forced to reveal high-stakes secrets to his (steadily increasing) audience in order to survive.
Foster most recently directed an episode of the Netflix political thriller House of Cards, has directed three movies including 2011’s The Beaver starring Mel Gibson and Jennifer Lawrence, and scored an Emmy nod in 2013 for directing an episode of Orange Is the New Black. This will be her first time directing Clooney.
TriStar Productions has acquired the worldwide rights to Money Monster and is set to begin filming in early 2015.
