Jodie Foster has joined the cast of 'Elysium'.

The 'Panic Room' star will star alongside Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley in the Neill Blomkamp-directed sci-fi movie.

Not much is known about the script but it will be the next project for Blomkamp, who marked his first directorial project with the well-received South Africa-based alien drama 'District 9' in 2009.

It is also known it will tell the story of a distant planet in the far future.

Jodie is set to have a busy year ahead - she will next be seen in cinemas in Mel Gibson vehicle 'The Beaver', about a man who begins talking to a hand puppet and will shoot Roman Polanski-movie 'God of Carnage' alongside Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly in 2011.

Her career has been quiet in recent years, having not starred in a movie since 2008 adventure comedy 'Nim's Island' alongside Gerard Butler and Abigail Breslin.
