Foster files 'Flight Plan' at Touchstone
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. Robert DiNozzi is executive producing. Overseeing for Disney are
Brigham Taylor and Louanne Brickhouse, while Jim Whitaker overlooks for
Imagine. "Flight Plan" would be Foster's first outing since 2002's "Panic
Room." Foster has won two Oscars, for her performances in "The Silence of
the Lambs" and "The Accused." She is repped ICM and Matt Saver. (Borys
