Last October, ComingSoon.net broke the news that director Joel Schumacher was interested in casting Halle Berry for his thriller, The Hive. Then, at the beginning of this year, Schumacher dropped off the film and The Machinist director Brad Anderson took the helm. At the time, it was suspected that Berry would not be available due to scheduling conflicts but, today, Variety confirms that she’s back aboard.
The project, from Exit Wounds and Thir13en Ghosts screenwriter Rich D’Ovidio, is said to focus on a female emergency line operator who, in trying to help a young girl, comes up against a killer from her own past.
Berry last appeared in New Year’s Eve and can be seen at the end of this month in the action thriller Dark Tide.
