Jodie Foster is going to be one face you won’t be seeing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The production outfit Egg Pictures — a company owned by Foster and her producing partner Meg LeFauve — has lifted its film “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys” from the Sundance lineup in the last minute, Daily Variety reported Monday.
The film — which stars Foster as a nun in a Southern Catholic school — was to serve as the Park City, Utah, festival’s Centerpiece Premiere, but word is that the $20 million budget is still in post-production and won’t be completed in time for the festival in late January.
