Global Road Entertainment has acquired the North American distribution rights to Jodie Foster’s futuristic thriller “Hotel Armetis.”

Described as a kinetic, stylish action-thriller, Drew Pearce’s directorial debut features an ensemble cast of Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day and Dave Bautista.

Plot points are being kept strictly under wraps, but Foster is set to play a character called “The Nurse” who runs a secret, members-only emergency room for criminals in futuristic, riot-torn L.A.

“Hotel Armetis” is produced by Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and The Ink Factory’s Simon and Stephen Cornwell. Jeffrey Stott, Pearce, Joe Tsai and Arthur Wang are executive producing. The thriller is financed by The Ink Factory in partnership with 127 Wall.

Pearce previously wrote “Iron Man 3” and “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.” He is represented by WME.

The deal was negotiated by John Zois, Global Road Entertainment’s Head of Worldwide Acquisitions & Co-Productions, and Endeavor Content on behalf of the filmmakers. Lionsgate International is handling international sales for the film.
