Halle Berry & Natalie Portman: 'Cloud Atlas' Stars!

Halle Berry is gearing up for Cloud Atlas, a new project from the Wachowskis!

“They did The Matrix - they have another really amazing idea that’s going to stretch our brains even further,” Halle said at a recent NAACP Image Awards screening. “I’m really excited about that – that’s probably going to be in the summer.”

The 44-year-old actress would team up with attached actors Natalie Portman and Tom Hanks for the project – the Wachowskis know Nat from their work together on V for Vendetta!

Cloud Atlas is based on a book by the same name, which features stories spanning centuries and leading into the post apocalyptic future.

    I so love the outfit they both are wearing especially Nat’s it’s amazing. I think this is Natalie’s year and I’m sure she will do well with Halle in this movie idea..

  • WhiteLady

    The novel is absolutely amazing and Zi reccommend it to everyone (though it’svpretty challenging with lots of characters and better suited to be read while on holidays with full attention).
    Hope they do it justice!

    @Winter: You’re right she can’t decide who she want to comment on. She comes here and say nice things about natalie. Then she go back and repeated it rachel bilson blog. She should decide who she like best. Then she said things about rachel that are good or bad. Don’t like lexy hate bilson. I have gave up rachel bilson. So should she.Love natalie eveytime she is here. Don’t like halle berry just like i don’t like rachel bilson anymore.Both halle and rachel don’t have any talented. But men talent.

    Harry hate to remind you but NOPHUCKINGBODY gives a damn what you think!

    Dianna Ross is nothing but a DRUNK who hasn’t had a hit song in more than 15 years so get over it!

    Halle Berry with her “no talent self can HIRE YOU and ALL of your family members to work for her for the next 20 years and Nahla will still have money in the next 50 years to pay you

    as for The Truth;you need to go back to school and learn your grammar because your stinks!

    @Harry: Never be a Diana Ross? You must be kidding …Diana comes from the acting school of Whitney whatshername…never was impressed with Diana’s acting..Halle is a fabulous actress…her work in her Dorothy Dandridge piece was fabulous….Catwoman was directed by a French Director and sorry but the French have this idea about satire that Americans simply do not find funny or engaging. Halle is 44, gorgeous and is just hitting her stride. But for anyone who did not see her as a crack addict in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever…go get the film and tell me if you recognize Halle berry.

    @hlep: Not sure what you mean by never making the big screen. I have always seen Halle’s movies at a major movie venue showing first runs. If you mean they don’t run for several months, well, hey nobody’s does anymore except a select few. You have to look at the theatre going audience for whom most films are being made these days. Halle ,like loads of other film stars, gets a huge show of fan love on the International market. Her films make money in Europe and possibly Asia…But she isn’t the only one…this trend started about two years ago when the Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep movie came out one week and disappear the next. Films that usually were box office guarantees were falling by the wayside…Netflix and DVD rental stores cut deeply into the movie going experience. People stay home to go to the movies. So who still hangs out at movies? teeny boppers who want to see vampire or Avatar…thus you get films directed at that genre. Half the people on here relate to Halle’s hair as being Lesbian? How surreal…why because they are either very young or intellectually impoverished. They see Ellen D on tV and think her short hair cut and manly clothes are new. Ellen has Halle’s old haircut not the other way around. And Halle in a suit is fashion revisiting what it did 20 years ago with some updates. It is not a reflection of Ellen’s choice in dressing. Ellen has been dressing like a guy forever, but only since she met Portia has she begun wearing makeup and buying designer clothes. So it is a riot to hear people related to Halle’s appearance as somehow a take off of Ellens. Ellen whom I love used to dress tradtionally “Butch” in..baggy pants, ugly shoes and mundane hair. She now looks like what her paycheck can afford…but it really doesn’t touch Halle berry’s fashion choices.

    Sxean Lee-David ? Ring a bell, yet ? Where’s your conscience ? Did they cut that off too ?
