LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- What’s the only thing better than one Halle Berry personality? Multiple Halle personalities! Plus, why was Scarlett Johansson too old for “Napoleon?” And, little Rudy Huxtable is all grown up. It’s all in the latest edition of the Access Hollywood Casting Call!
Halle Berry has signed on to star in and produce the psychological thriller “Frankie and Alice,” reports Variety.
The film follows a young woman struggling with multiple personality disorder who finds herself torn between who she is and a racist Caucasian alter-personality that preys upon her mind.
No word yet when production will begin.
Next up for Berry is the drama “Tulia,” opposite her former “Monster’s Ball” co-star Billy Bob Thornton.
Emma Watson will step in to replace Scarlett Johansson in the period drama “Napoleon and Betsy,” per The Hollywood Reporter.
Watson will play Betsy Balcombe, a young noblewoman trapped on the isolated British Isle of St. Helena who falls in love with Napoleon, who has been exiled to the island.
Johansson bowed out of the project when the part began to skew younger. However, she will still co-produce the film.
Watson is best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” films. Filming on the latest chapter, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is wrapping up and shooting on the last installment in the series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” is slated to begin in early 2009.
Watson is hoping to film “Napoleon” in the fall.
Val Kilmer, Sharon Stone, Dylan McDermott and 50 Cent will star in the action-drama “Streets of Blood,” per Variety.
The film focuses on the relationship between two police officers dealing with the lawlessness of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Filming is slated to begin next month and last for eight weeks.
Kilmer recently lent his voice to the upcoming animated feature “Delgo,” alongside Anne Bancroft, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Kelly Ripa.
Stone is wrapping production on “Five Dollars a Day,” a comedy co-starring Christopher Walken and Amanda Peet.
Meanwhile, 50 Cent will next be seen on the big screen opposite two Hollywood heavyweights, as he stars with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in “Righteous Kill.”
Remember little Rudy Huxtable from “The Cosby Show?”
Well, she’s all grown up and playing a hooker.
Keisha Knight Pulliam will play a jailed prostitute in “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail,” per The Hollywood Reporter.
The film, which also stars Derek Luke, Tamela Mann and David Mann, finds Madea (Tyler Perry) landing herself behind bars.
While imprisoned, she comes to the rescue of Candy (Pulliam), a fellow inmate who finds herself being preyed upon by a large woman named Big Sal.
As usual, Perry will be playing multiple roles in the film.
Filming is set to begin next month in Atlanta.
Pulliam recently appeared in Perry’s TBS series “House of Payne.”
