Admittedly, Halle Berry’s recent record as far as horror movies go–Gothika and, on a limited level, Dark Side (let’s just not even mention Catwoman)–has not been good. But there may be something in the works to get her a little note of credibility: Joel Schumacher’s upcoming title, The Hive.
The Hive follows an emergency services operator who finds herself in a serious problem on several levels. She survived a serial killer in her past, but just when she’d thought that she wouldn’t see him again, she finds that she’s going to have to confront him again, and this time to save someone else’s life. Will she pull it off? Or will the killer claim a whole new victim?
I’m a bit skeptical about this one; we’ve kind of heard this plot before, and Halle Berry doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. It’s entirely possible that this one could turn it all around, though, but we’ll have a wait before this one comes out as they’re still casting.
