"Hotel Artemis" marks Foster's first acting project since 2013's "Elysium". In addition to directing the George Clooney headlined social satire/thriller Money Monster, Foster has called the shots on episodes of Netflix series House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and Black Mirror over that period of time. Sterling K. Brown costars as Waikiki, a robber who shows up at Hotel Artemis injured alongside his crew one night, following what was otherwise a successful job. Brown, Jeff Goldblum, Dave Bautista, Sofia Boutella, Brian Tyree Henry, Charlie Day, Zachary Quinto and Jenny Slate are among the stars in Drew Pearce's directorial debut.
Foster plays the head nurse at the establishment. Entitled Hotel Artemis, it's an action-thriller focussing on a members-only secret hospital in Los Angeles that caters towards criminals.
Watching the trailer, the film looks like it'll be a mix of classic crime and thriller elements mixed with a bit of dark humor, given the nihilistic view of the future Pearce is clearly going for.
Drew Pearce is best known for creating the British sitcom "No Heroics" and writing the story for "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation", but that will soon change thanks to "Hotel Artemis".
From there it seems the rag-tag crew of criminals have to fight their way out of the hotel before The Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum) finds them. But damn, if Hotel Artemis doesn't have a stellar cast.
Global Road Entertainment's set a June 8, 2018 theatrical release date.
