KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE 2 (2017): Halle Berry Considered For Role

Halle Berry

Halle Berry in talks to join Kingsman: The Secret Service 2. The Academy Award-winning Monster’s Ball actress and X-Men star might be appearing in the sequel to the 2014 comic adaptation.

If she signs onto the film, it will be the first time Berry has acted on the big screen in 3 years. Her last film appearance was in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, where she returned to the role of Ororo Munroe, also known as Storm. During that gap, however, Berry saw plenty of work on the small screen, playing the lead on CBSExtant, a science fiction series that ran for two seasons.

According to sources, the star is in negotiations to play a CIA chief in the Kingsman sequel. If talks go through, she might find herself acting opposite fellow Oscar winner Julianne Moore, who is up for consideration as the film’s villain:

Matthew Vaughn is confirmed to direct Kingsman 2, the first sequel he’s ever personally helmed. Taron Egerton (Eddie the Eagle) is returning to his star-making role as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin, who is now fully-trained secret agent. While the first film took place primarily in England, the new one is said to focus more on the USA and the American branch of the title covert Secret Service agency. Colin Firth is not expected to return in either a flashback or as a new character, although the possibility of him playing his own twin brother was bandied about before being abandoned.
