Jodie Foster is reportedly heading back to the director's chair.

The two-time Academy Award-winning actress is attached to direct a film called "Money Monster," according to Deadline.com. The film will be a drama about a TV personality named Lee Gates whose "insider trading tips have made him a money guru of Wall Street."

Gates is later held hostage on air by a viewer named Kyle who lost all of his family's money because of a bad tip by Gates.

According to the report, production of the film is scheduled to begin in early 2013.

This is not Foster's first effort as a director. She previously directed "Little Man Tate" in 1991, "Home for the Holidays," in 1995 and most recently directed and starred in "The Beaver" in 2011.

The actress recently starred in "Carnage" and is set to appear in the sci-fi thriller "Elysium" with Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley. That film is due out on March 1, 2013.

Foster rose to fame in the 1973 film "Taxi Driver," where she played a teenage prostitute. She has also starred in "The Silence of the Lambs," "Contact" and "Inside Man."
