Halle Berry: ‘I’m In’ For X-Men: Days Of Future Past
LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
After months of speculation regarding whether Halle Berry will reprise her role as Storm in the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the actress tells Access Hollywood she’s in.
“I’m in. I think I’m in,” the actress told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman, when asked if she is 100 percent going to appear in the Bryan Singer-directed Marvel mutant movie, at the junket for her new thriller, “The Call,” in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Out of the dozens of characters the Oscar-winning actress has played, Halle said mutant Storm/Ororo Munroe is one of her all-time favorites.
“I am [excited], yeah,” she said, when asked if she’s looking forward to donning her superhero duds again. “I love Storm. That’s one of my favorite characters that I’ve played. And people love that character as well.”
While playing the cloudy-eyed, weather-controlling mutant requires quite a bit of time in the makeup chair, Halle said no role could be more exhausting in the physical transformation department than her recent reincarnation film alongside Tom Hanks.
“After ‘Cloud Atlas’ any makeup job is a breeze. A breeze!” she said with a laugh.
Halle joins a long roster of stars returning to the “X-Men” franchise for “Days of Future Past” (due to hit theaters on July 18, 2014) including Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and more.
“The Call” – starring Halle, Abigail Breslin and Morris Chestnut – hits theaters on March 15.
