Halle Berry returns to “X-men”

2013 March 13


The Oscar winning actress for her amazing performance in "Monster Ball" will put her white-Storm-mutant-wig on and return to the movie she first stared in almost 13 years ago. Director Bryan Singer has confirmed Halle Berry’s participation in his next "X-Men: Days of future past" movie. 


In 1990-s, when “X-men” were only at the preproduction stage Bryan Singer wanted to give the Storm part to Angela Bassett. But fortunately for all of us, except for Angela Bassett, the role of the mutant with the ability to change weather got Halle Berry. The interesting fact is that the actress was always unhappy with the wig choices costume directors had for her, and the suitable hairstyle was finally picked when the third movie was in process. 

Mr. Singer wrote in his twitter: “Couldn't be more excited that Halle Berry has joined the cast of “X-Men Days of Future Past”. Hopefully she can improve the weather in Montreal.”

Halle herself is also more than excited to be back. Here’s what she says about her comeback: “I love Storm, adore her. This is one of my favorite characters to play and people like her too.” When the actress was asked to compare the shooting processes while working on “X-men” and “Cloud Atlas” she said that Singer’s movies are child’s plays compared to Wachowski’s and Tykwer’s film because “Atlas” became a real trial when it came to make-up. 


Apart from Halle Berry the new X-men movie cast includes the following actors from the original trilogy: Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Anna Paquin. James Marsden’s and Famke Janssen’s participation is not officially confirmed yet.  

The new cast members are presented with the Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage and French actor Omar Sy that is famous by his latest “Intouchables 1+1” movie. The new movie is going to be very tight; the leading roles are taken by the current stars: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult. 

Halle Berry can be seen in her recent thriller “The Call” that was released in March.
