Our last report on this was last month, when it was revealed that Brad Anderson's Halle Berry thriller The Hive, was being shopped in Cannes buyers.
It looks like success was found as it's being reported that WWE Studios and Troika Pictures will jointly produce and co-finance The Hive, which co-stars Abigail Breslin, with principal photography scheduled to begin about a week from today.
So this will be Halle's next film.
Set against the backdrop of a 911 call center, this fast-paced suspense pic will find Berry playing a 911 emergency operator who takes a call from a teenage girl (Breslin) who has been abducted and carried away in the trunk of a car. Berry's character must face her own fears in order to save the teenage girl from a disturbed killer. The kidnapping plays out in real time as the pair work together to track down the killer.
Written by Rich D’Ovidio (Exit Wounds, Thir13en Ghosts), principal photography is scheduled to begin July 6 in and around Los Angeles.
After the shark drama Dark Tide, released earlier this year, Halle Berry will likely next be seen in Cloud Atlas, the Tom Tykwer/Andy Wachowski/Lana Wachowski collab based on the complex novel of the same name.
