This won't be the first time Foster has stepped behind the camera. In addition to directing the films Little Man Tate, Home for the Holidays and last year's Beaver, she directed an episode of the 1980s series Tales from the Darkside. Foster is also a co-executive producer of Fox's Touch and was an executive producer for the 1998 Showtime TV movie The Baby Dance.
