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. While he admits that nothing has become official as of right now, there is at least an interest on the part of them and the producers; that seems like enough these days.

 Joel Schumacher has confirmed in an interview that Halle Berry is in talks to take the lead in the tentatively titled The Hive, about "a female emergency line operator who, in trying to help a young girl, comes up against a killer from her own past." While nothing is official at this point, the director said, he and Berry are both interested in working together and the producers of The Hive seem to be on board with hiring her. The thriller is expected to begin shooting in February, though Schumacher has said that he may shoot another, smaller film before that. Berry will next appear in Garry Marshall's limp-looking ensemble romcom New Year's Eve, and is currently shooting Cloud Atlas with directors Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski.
