Actor Halle Berry has shared her excitement about her upcoming movie and sharing screen space with Angelina Jolie, according to People.
In an interview, she revealed to Variety at the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, that she and Jolie, 48, “had a rocky start” working on “Maude v Maude”. However, she added, “I think that is going to serve us well in our screen time together.”
The “X-Men” actor also hailed her fellow Oscar winner “formidable” and said she was “thrilled to work with another woman and craft a story with our sensibility and from our point of view.”
In exchanging their individual experiences, the two discovered a lot in common, according to Berry. “We’ve been talking a lot about divorces and exes. We bonded, let’s say that.”
According to People, “Maude v Maude” is an action-thriller film that will reportedly feature Berry and Jolie battling “physically and intellectually” on the big screen. It’s directed by Roseanne Liang with a script from Scott Mosier. Both are among its producing team, which also includes Berry and Jolie. Following a heated bidding war in April, the project, which Deadline described as a ‘Bond vs. Bourne’ type of global action thriller,” was acquired by distributor Warner Bros.
