Halle Berry is set to return to genre films with Mother Land, the next project from the director of Crawl, The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D.
It goes without saying that Halle Berry tends to lift pretty much any project she joins, so when the Oscar-winning actor boards an ‘elevated thriller’, that’s a whole lot of lifting for us to anticipate. The director of the project is Crawl’s Alexandre Aja, meaning we could be in for some gleefully trashy thrills. The project is titled Mother Land and is being overseen by 21 Laps and Lionsgate. Stranger Things’ producer Shawn Levy is producing too, and if this one finds the mark, it could be a lot of fun.
The plot focuses on ‘a mother and her twin sons who have been tormented by an evil spirit for years. When one of the boys questions whether the evil is real, the family’s sacred bond is broken, and it becomes a fight for survival.’
The film will be launched at Cannes next week and is expected to enter production next year.
Berry continues to demonstrate the range of her career, whether it’s directing, taking on challenging roles or simply throwing herself into lighter genre fare. Her turns in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum and Moonfall were a delight and if you’re a fan of Aja’s brand of heightened thrills, such as Crawl, The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D, then this will be one for you to look forward to.
More, as always, as we hear it.
