Halle Berry to Play Jewel Thief?


Moviehole is reporting that Halle Berry (“X-Men” films) will star in Who is Doris Payne, the true story of a woman who spent 75 years, at large, robbing precious stones.

Eunetta T.Boone, a seasoned TV writer who has written everything from episodes of “The Hugleys” to “Roc,” is the writer. Justin Berfield (“Malcolm in the Middle”) is one of the producers.

Knicknamed the “Grandmother Thief”, Doris Marie Payne’s traits were well known to the police who were amazed at how easily she could distract shop assistants and simply walk away with her loot.
