Jodie Foster in Hudson Heights?
Seeing those temporary no-parking signs that announce a film shoot is such a common occurrence around the city that I don't even stop to read most of them anymore. But seeing them on Bennett Avenue is quite the rare sight, at least as long as I've been around this neighborhood. But there were the yellow fliers this week, announcing a Friday shoot for The Brave One. Synopsis: "A woman struggles to recover from a brutal attack by setting out on a mission for revenge." Not necessarily a movie I'd like to see, except for the fact that the woman is Jodie Foster, who's made quite the career out of playing women in peril. Other stars include Terrence Howard and Mary Steenburgen. Neil Jordan's directing, and it's supposed to come out June of '07.
