Jodie Foster on Mel Gibson: ‘I’d love to do anything he’s directing’

In a a previous clip from my video interview with Jodie Foster, the actress and director talked about why she cast Mel Gibson in “The Beaver,” which opens Friday.

In a new clip, she expresses her interest in working with Gibson again, as well as her other future plans, including the fact that she begins shooting Neil Blomkamp’s “Elysium” in August. (She calls Blomkamp’s ”District 9” the “perfect film.”)

Watch that portion of the interview below, then hit the jump for two additional clips, one in which she discusses how to direct child actors and another in which she describes one of the most important casting processes in ”The Beaver”: choosing the puppet that would share screen time with Gibson.
