You’re familiar with Jodie Foster as an actress, but if you didn’t know she directed, you’re missing out on some of Foster’s best work.
Foster will, in fact, direct her fourth Netflix television episode later this year after signing on to helm an episode of Black Mirror.
The third season of the anthology series from British satirist Charlie Brooker will debut on the subscription streaming service Friday. However, the fourth season already is set to go in front of the cameras, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with Foster teaming up with Poltergeist and United States of Tara actress Rosemarie DeWitt.
No other details about the episode have been released, but it will be one of six that will make up the fourth season of the show, which Netflix imported from the United Kingdom’s Channel 4. There two three-episode seasons were produced, along with a special in 2014.
Netflix had picked up the American re-transmission rights, becoming such a big hit, the streaming company actually outbid Channel 4 for the third and fourth seasons.
Foster has worked on Netflix series in the past – she directed an episode of House of Cards in 2014, and two episodes of Orange is the New Black in 2013 and 2014.
Although Foster would get critical acclaim for her movie directing work for projects like 1991’s Little Man Tate, she actually got her directing start in television, for a 1988 episode of Tales From the Darkside.
Stars for the upcoming third season of Black Mirror include Alice Eve, Bryce Dallas Howard, Cherry Jones, Michael Kelly, Malachi Kirby, James Norton and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
