According to Variety Halle Berry is advanced talks to star in action-thriller Dark Tide, which will see her strapping on her wetsuit and taking on Great White sharks. The film will be directed by Clark Johnson, director of S.W.A.T and The Sentinel and is expected to start filming later this year in South Africa with a budget of $20 million.
Project, penned by Amy Sorlie, concerns a diving instructor who returns to the deep after a near-fatal incident with a Great White shark.
“Twilight” producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will shepherd “Dark” via their Temple Hill banner.
Halle Berry has been off our screens for far too long, which is a result of her having offspring and starring in a few indie films. She needs a big comeback movie but I don’t think this shark movie will be it. There’s no major studio behind it and it will probably only get a limited release, so it’ll be even longer before we see Berry again in a big way. Damn the world!
