Netflix has never been shy about putting big names in front of the camera for its popular anthology series, Black Mirror. Last season featured such incredible talent as Bryce Dallas Howard and Mackenzie Davis. When the series returns with Season Four, the streaming network will follow up on its tremendous success by placing a superstar behind the camera this time around! Jodie Foster has directed a new episode entitled “Arkangel,” which features a rather extreme new technological method of parenting. The studio has just released a short promotional clip for Foster’s episode, and it features the tagline, “The key to good parenting is control.” It all goes downhill from there!
You can watch the entire clip below:
While Jodie Foster is primarily recognized as an award-winning actress with nearly 80 performances to date, she has also been known to direct from time to time. In 2011, her film, The Beaver, achieved critical success. Believe it or not, her earliest directing credits include horror projects such as Stephen King’s Golden Tales and an episode of Tales from the Darkside. Couple that with her legendary performance as Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs, and horror fans have good reason to be excited about her return to the genre with “Arkangel!”
Netflix has not yet set an official release date for Black Mirror Season Four, but today’s clip means we might be closer to launch than we think! Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on this exciting project as they break!
