The Beaver director, who starred in Contact back in 1997, tells the LA Times, "I'd like to do that because that's a world I live in as an actor but I've never really gone to as a director."

Foster adds that production for her next film won't begin for awhile. She says, "It's not anywhere close to being ready. [I don't write], so that always puts me at the mercy of some enormous talent that comes out of the woodwork that somehow has the same obsessions as me."

Foster will next star in the science fiction film Elysium.
