Former child actor BEN FOSTER was most recently seen on the big screen in THE MECHANIC and is probably best known for his roles in the TV sci-fi drama FLASH FORWARD and as the cold-blooded killer Charlie Prince in the 2007 remake of 3:10 TO YUMA. Now, he’s taking a step behind the camera.
Next up for FOSTER is RAMPART, a crime drama loosely based on actual events occurring at the infamously corrupt Los Angeles police station of the same name. Directed by OREN MOVERMAN (THE MESSENGER) from a story by JAMES ELLROY, cast members joining FOSTER are STEVE BUSCEMI, SIGOURNEY WEAVER, ROBIN WRIGHT, WOODY HARRELSON, ICE CUBE, CYNTHIA NIXON and ANNE HECHE. As one of the producers of RAMPART, FOSTER is taking a very “hands-on” approach to its release. During our recent interview, he talked about this new aspect of his career.
