Woot! Now if only they can get James Marsden to come back as Cyclops I’ll be one happy gal! If you go to the link below you will see the image of Bryan Singer’s tweet confirming Halle has indeed joined the cast.
Halle Berry will be reprising her role as Marvel character Storm in the 2014 film, “X-Men: Day of Future Past,” according to the film’s producer Bryan Singer.
Singer tweeted the news to more than 44,000 followers on his personal Twitter account today.
The newest “X-Men” film will focus on chronicling the lives of the mutants who have to travel back in time to change an event that could have a global “impact on man and mutant kind,” according to IMBD.
Original “X-Men” (2000) castmates Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, and Anna Paquin have already signed on for the project, as well as Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and her former beau Nicholas Hoult, who costarred in 2011′s “X-Men: First Class.”
Halle Berry talked to Shadow and Act on Thursday and was asked if she’ll be returning as Storm in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
According to the site, “she did confirm to me that she would be returning in the role. Most likely. Practically 90% sure. And she nodded a lot too. I can’t say, and neither could she say that it’s definitely a done deal, and that the contracts have all been signed, with all the “i”s dotted and the “t”s crossed.
They added that there “a few details that are still being negotiated which she couldn’t get into. But since she did tell me that the film starts shooting in April, it’s highly unlikely that talks are going to suddenly and horribly fall apart at this point, and the producers have to scramble to find a replacement at the very last minute.”
Stay tuned for possible confirmation that she will officially be back.
Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Peter Dinklage are already on board for the July 18, 2014 release.
Actresses Queen Latifah, Halle Berry and Jessica Biel are among the stars who have been recognised for their charity work by movie industry publication Variety magazine.
The annual Power of Women ceremony celebrates celebrities who have dedicated their time to philanthropic efforts, and this year (12) Chicago star Latifah, Oscar winner Berry, and The A-Team actress Biel have been selected as honourees.
Latifah was chosen for serving as the founder of the Lancelot H. Owens Scholarship Foundation, which provides financial support to struggling students, and Berry was picked for her commitment to the anti-domestic violence organisation Jenesse Center. Additionally, Biel was applauded for her support of the clean water project Charity: Water.
The trio will be feted at a Hollywood luncheon on 5 October (12).
It seems odd that we haven’t gotten more movies with Tom Hanks and Halle Berry together, but ‘Cloud Atlas’ looks to be one of the best. Directed by the Wachowskis, it spans decades and has a multitude of characters involved. In fact, for those not previously acquainted with the book, the trailer and synopsis seem intentionally vague, but awesome nonetheless. After premiering at TIFF, Cloud Atlas was met with strong reviews and praise for the performances. In an interview with Flicks and Bits, Hanks and Berry sit down to discuss the movie.
When asked about his experience making the movie, Hanks replies that “When I heard they were gonna make a German blockbuster written in Costa Rica I said, “I’m in!” Because I’ve never heard of such a bodacious United Nations approach to making a film before (laughs). This was a fully realized vision that was presented to us at the get-go. These guys had gone off and were aiming at this sort of piece of cinematic literature, and all we really had to do was read the blueprint to see what was expected of us. I said, “Well, that sounds like all the things acting in movies is supposed to be. It’s going to be brilliant fun, we get to go to cool places, it will be very very hard work on occasion – and we’ll go through some sort of emotional trench to get at the moments that a very well highlighted in both the book and the screenplay.” I jumped at it.”
Halle Berry Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Maya Rudolph will be hanging out on “Sesame Street” this season — and they’ll be far from alone.
The long-running children’s show announced the guest stars for its upcoming 43rd season on Monday, unveiling a list that includes Berry, Gordon-Levitt, Rudolph, Don Cheadle, Amy Ryan, Casey Affleck, Melissa McCarthy, Steve Carell and Jon Hamm.
Other actors who’ll be guesting on “Sesame Street” include David Hyde Pierce, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Kristen Bell and Paula Patton.
On the musical end of things, rapper Common, singer Colbie Caillat and rock band Train — the latter of whom will duet with Elmo and the Count on “Five By,” a parody of their hit “Drive By.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Matt Kemp and NBA slam dunk champion Blake Griffin will pitch in with guest appearances, as will “Extra” personality Mario Lopez and talk-show host Wendy Williams.
Oh, and the Muppets will also be getting a visit from U.S. Supreme Court judge Sonia Sotomayor.
In addition to the guest stars, the 43rd season of “Sesame Street” — which premieres Sept. 24 on PBS Kids — is adding a new segment, “Elmo! The Musical!” Replacing the current “Elmo’s World” segment, “Elmo! The Musical” will deliver “a math-filled adventure inviting kids to sing, dance, play and imagine along with Elmo” as he envisions himself in such productions as “Sea Captain the Musical” and “Guacamole the Musical,” according to Sesame Workshop.
Pop-culture spoofs this season will include “The Voice,” featuring three judges who are searching for “the voice,” but “keep mistaking it for sounds made by other parts of the body,” and “Upside Downton Abbey,” a skewering of PBS’s own “Downton Abbey” that turns the concept of gravity on its head.
