Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster are to team up for director Roman Polanski's new film "God of Carnage". The film adaptation of Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning play will begin shooting in France at the beginning of 2011.
The comedy is set in New York, but exiled Polanski is refusing to return to America, where he still faces 30-year-old child sex charges. The moviemaker was recently released from house arrest in Switzerland after he was threatened with extradition to the U.S. to face the charges against him.
"Inglourious Basterds" star Christoph Waltz and Matt Dillon will play Fosters and Winslet's partners in the film.
"God Of Carnage" tells the story of two sets of parents who decide to have a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a schoolyard brawl. The confrontation goes disastrously wrong after each couple attacks the others' parenting skills, which leads to the husbands and wives turning on each other about problems in their own marriages.
