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.

Taking its slot will be the world premiere of "Invisible Circus," which stars Cameron Diaz.

I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS: Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney, who underwent bypass surgery on Dec. 20, was released from the hospital Monday and spent Christmas evening at his mother-in-law's house, The Associated Press reported.

"He's more than happy to be out on Christmas Day," Kevin Pawley, manager for the 80-year-old actor, told AP.
