Jodie Foster has several directing credits to her name–including “The Beaver” and “Little Man Tate”–and now she’s looking to add another.

Foster will helm “Money Monster”, a financial drama centered on a fast-talking television personality with ties to Wall Street named Lee Gates. When a bad financial tip causes a viewer to lose all his money, he takes Gates hostage on-air, creating a tense situation which is broadcasted live.

The news of Foster’s role behind the camera comes with mixed reviews, as some aren’t sure how she’ll do with such a tense script.
