The buzz around director Brad Anderson’s (The Vanishing on 7th Street) new serial killer drama The Hive has just gotten buzzier: Academy award-winning actress Halle Berry has officially signed on to star in the Troika Pictures’ production.
Berry will play a 911 operator attempting to help a girl survive the clutches of a sadistic murderer. The film, written by Richard D’Ovidio (Thir13en Ghosts), will shoot in Los Angeles starting in June.
Berry is coming off the John Stockwell (Turistas) shark drama Dark Tide, available now on VOD and slated for a limited theatrical run on March 30. Previous genre creds include Perfect Stranger, Catwoman, Gothika, and the X-Men franchise.
