Jodie Foster to Star and Direct English Remake of 'Woman at War'.

Two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster is set to star in, co-produce and direct an English-language remake of "Woman at War".

"Woman at War" is an Icelandic thriller directed by Benedikt Erlingsson that is the country’s official submission to the upcoming Academy Awards.

Foster will reinterpret the role of Halla, a genial middle-aged music teacher hiding a secret life as an outlaw environmental activist with a grudge against the local aluminum industry that is despoiling the pristine Highlands of Iceland. Halla is escalating her one-woman campaign of sabotage when an unexpected letter arrives with news.

And as in the original film, Foster will also play two roles, both the part of Halla and her identical twin sister.
