I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that we've seen and heard much more about the romance that blossomed during the making of the film (between Halle Berry and her co-star Olivier Martinez) than about the film!

As much as I love looking at the woman, I wish the paparazzi and press would lay off for awhile, and maybe instead, you know, report on the film, which was shot in South Africa last summer, and we haven't seen or heard much of since then... until now!

First, a quick recap... It's the shark thriller titled Dark Tide, in which Ms Berry stars as a diving instructor who is "drawn to close encounters with the White Sharks that rule the shores of the isolated island on which she lives." Olivier plays Halle’s husband in the movie, who “chooses ambition over his wife’s safety in a split second encounter with the jaws of death, leading to their marriage nearly falling apart.

The film has an American distributor, according to IMDB, but no official release date. Although, as I last reported on it, I contacted the production and sales company behind the film last month, to find out what its status was, and neither would reveal much, except to say, in an email I received from Magnet Media Productions, "We are finishing the film to be delivered in July."

No further clarification yet on what that means exactly; the sales team was at Cannes, previewing and selling the film to international territories, and apparently doing so with some success.

Can't really say what to expect here... Halle's stock isn't very high at the moment, given the reception of her last film, Frankie And Alice; so, Dark Tide could actually turn out to be a significant film in Halle's career. Although she's attached to at least 1 high profile project - the Cloud Atlas adaptation by Tom Twyker, shepherded by the Wachowskis, with Tom Hanks confirmed to star. So, who knows.

But other than Dark Tide, which really should be out this year, she doesn't have any other titles on the horizon. Sure, she has a bit part in the ensemble romcom sequel to Valentine's Day, titled New Year's Eve, which I believe will be out before New Year's Eve, but it doesn't appear to be much of a role. And she had to drop out of the stage play, The Mountaintop, to tackle a custody battle.

So, I'll say she's kind of reeling right now, and in need of a hit. Could Dark Tide be it?

Watch the trailer below and let the speculation begin (thanks reader Guilherme Griz for the tip):
