Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry’s career may have figuratively jumped the shark after her performance in the 2004 stinker Catwoman, but that’s not keeping the 43-year-old stunner from diving with real South African Great Whites for her upcoming frightener Dark Tide.
Berry plays a diving instructor who returns to the island waters where she narrowly survived a great white shark attack. The film is currently being shot in South Africa off the coast of Seal Island in False Bay, home to over 64,000 seals and the sharks who love them.
Dark Tide is directed by John Stockwell (Turistas) and written by professional shark diver/journalist Amy Sorlie. Twilight producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are bankrolling the estimated $15-to-$20 million feature, which is slated for release next year.
Berry’s previous genre creds include the 2007 thriller Perfect Stranger opposite Bruce Willis and the 2003 psycho-drama Gothika, costarring Robert Downey Jr. and Penelope Cruz. Berry also played Storm in the 20th Century Fox X-Men franchise.
