November 11, 1999

NEW YORK (AP) _ Jodie Foster says she has not decided either way on whether she will reprise her role as Clarice Starling for a possible sequel to ``Silence of the Lambs.″

In the December issue of the magazine W, Foster was quoted as saying that ``Hannibal,″ the sequel to the book the Academy Award-winning film is based on, makes the FBI agent too grisly by turning her into a cannibal like the title role of Hannibal Lecter.

But in a statement Wednesday, the actress said she has made no decision on the project.

``I have never made any extensive comments about my feeling about the book to anyone,″ she said. ``I will make my decision based on a reading of the script which has not been received.″

The magazine quoted Foster as saying, ``The movie worked because people believed in her heroism. I won’t play her with negative attributes she’d never have.″
