Halle Berry to play female lead in Netflix's Our Man from New Jersey
Interestingly, the project is still without a director,
Oscar-winner Halle Berry has been signed to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in the spy thriller Our Man From Jersey.
Interestingly, the project is still without a director, with several rumours floating around that Netflix has its eye on a particular filmmaker and their official deal just hasn't signed yet.
David Guggenheim (Safe House) has written the script and although plot details are being kept secret, reports suggest that it will be a spy movie in the vein of James Bond, albeit with a blue-collar lead.
Wahlberg and longtime collaborator Stephen Levinson are producing the movie, which brings them back to Netflix following Spenser Confidential. Also, there are reports that even though Wahlberg's hero hails from New Jersey, the film itself will be shot in London early next year.
Netflix recently acquired Halle Berry's directorial debut Bruised, which is expected to start streaming later this year. In addition, Berry has also signed on to star in its sci-fi movie The Mothership..
