Foster Joins “Free Solo” Duo’s “Nyad”
Jodie Foster will join Annette Bening in the biopic on marathon swimmer Diana Nyad at Netflix.
Bening plays Nyad who, in 2013 at the age of 64, became the first person to swim the 110-mile distance from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage. Foster will play Bonnie Stoll, her coach and longtime friend.
“Free Solo” helmers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin make their narrative debut with the drama penned by Ann Biderman and Julia Cox.
