Jodie Foster in Sci-Fi Flick 'Elysium': First Look

1_jodie_foster

Twitpic user @simply_jodie has published the first photos of Jodie Foster on set in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Elysium.

Here's a description of the film, via ontd:

In the year 2159, two classes of people exist. The first are the very wealthy who live on Elysium, a pristine man-made space station similar in appearance to a Stanford torus built by the Armadyne Corporation. The rest live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard-nosed government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That does not stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky ex-con Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Jodie Foster: 'I am Not Retiring'

Some people took Jodie Foster's suggestion at the Golden Globes that big changes were coming in her professional life to mean that the actress was retiring. She is not, she clarifies:

Jodie_foster“No, I am not retiring,” Foster clarified emphatically. “I could never stop acting. You’d have to drag me with wild horses."
Nor is Foster leaving the world of entertainment behind, saying that she in fact wants to do more directing.

“I’m actually more into it than I’ve been,” Foster said of her desire to work in the business.

The point she meant to make in her speech, she explained, was that "my work is evolving.”

Added Foster:

"The speech kind of speaks for itself. It's a big, long career, and it's not just a career; it's friendships and relationships...I feel like I am graduating from something...And it's a big moment, and I wanted to say, you know, what's most in my heart...It's an expression of who I am and what I'm thinking and feeling."
