Halle Berry Signs on for The Hive

Halle Berry Signs on for The HiveWell, it's official. The gorgeous Halle Berry is headed to stir up trouble within The Hive. Please, movie gods... let her do so in a string bikini. Hey, we can dream, right?

According to Variety, Berry is set to topline Troika Pictures' thriller The Hive, which Brad Anderson will direct this summer.

Set against the backdrop of a 911 call center, the fast-paced suspense flick will find Berry playing a 911 emergency operator who must face her own fears in order to save a teenage girl from a disturbed killer.

Rich D'Ovidio wrote the script, which is based on an original story by Nicole D'Ovidio, Jon Bokencamp and the scribe.

Robert Stein and Michael Helfant will produce for Troika Pictures, whose Bradley Gallo will co-produce. Jeff Graup will also produce the pic, while Philip M. Cohen and William Gallo will exec produce.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has domestic rights, with foreign sales being handled by Sierra/Affinity. Production is scheduled to start in late June in Los Angeles.

"Ms. Berry has always been our first choice to star in 'The Hive,' and we're thrilled that we were able to put this together in and around Los Angeles with the help of the California Tax Incentive," said Helfant and Stein.

"I'm thrilled to be working with Halle on this," added Anderson. "It's a formidable role for an equally formidable actress."

Berry was attached to a previous incarnation of the project when Joel Schumacher was on board to direct. She wasn't involved with the film when Anderson signed on to direct in January, citing personal scheduling issues at the time. Several top actresses pursued the project, but Berry recommitted to star after the start date was pushed back.

Dude, she's 45, the gorgeous part is behind her. Now she has to be considered purely on acting talent. In that area she's average at best.

You've obviously yet to experience the advantages and pleasures of being with an older woman. LOL

When I was 20 a woman who was in her late 20's was hot. Now that I'm older the pleasures are all in being with younger women.

If you figure out how menopause is an advantage let me know.

It's totally an advantage - no worries about getting pregnant, years of experience, and someone who's finally comfortable in her own skin without worrying so much about every little thing that the media, etc., say she should. Although from other comments you've made about women, it seems like you tend to believe cliches rather than reality, which is fine - it takes all kinds!

I have met some women who are perfectly happy in their own skin long before menopause.

As for cliches, some of them are rooted in truth others aren't.

I'm sure I'll eventually get around to enjoying a post menopausal woman, but I'm in no hurry.

No more cramps, headaches, or periods. Can shoot freely without worry. Advantage team menopause.
