Joel Schumacher Wants Halle Berry To Star In ‘The Hive’; Director Possibly Shooting Independent Film Beforehand

6 October 2011 1:24 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With all the attention that’s been paid to and all the praise that’s been lavished upon Joel Schumacher‘s latest film, Trespass, we’ve all (inexcusably) forgotten about his next project, The Hive. The film, written by Thir13en Ghosts scribe Rich D’Ovidio, follows “an emergency operator who must confront a killer from her past to save a young girl’s life.” Something about the phrase “a killer from her past” makes virtually no sense to me, but alright.

The latest on it is brought to us by ComingSoon, as they’ve learned from Schumacher himself that Halle Berry is pretty close to starring in the thriller.
