Halle Berry To Enter The Hive?
Playing a heroic call-centre operator

Halle Berry To Enter The Hive?

Out doing the rounds for home-invasion thriler Trespass, director Joel Schumacher has revealed that his next project may well be The Hive, and that he wants Halle Berry for his queen bee.

Not to be confused with the 2008 TV-movie about killer ants (although Schumacher says he might change the title anyway, because it makes him feel "itchy"), this one's about an emergency phone line operator who runs across "a killer from her own past" during a call with an imperilled young girl.

No documents have been signed yet, but Schumacher says that Berry is keen to man his phone lines, and that the film's producers are all in favour. The screenplay is by Richard D'Ovidio, who wrote Thirteen Ghosts and Steven Seagal's Exit Wounds, and the plan is to start shooting The HIve in February.

In the meantime however, Schumacher says he may squeeze in an indie. "There are two very small movies that are tempting me," he says. "That's where the really interesting material is right now: you can do things that you can't do in a much larger budget movie, much more risky material..."

Trespass, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman, doesn't have a UK release date yet, but is out in the US next week.

Halle Berry is terrible. Catwoman. X3. Gothika. Flintstones. She seems to believe that being in a film is enough. I thought this could be a movie like The Swarm. Disappointed. look, I worked in a call centre on emergency response. It's not exciting. More
