Courtesy of Indiewire, we have the first look at Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball, X-Men: The Last Stand) in her new thriller The Call, with the clever people at Sony / TriStar releasing an image of the beautiful actress performing duites that you would expect from a film entitled The Call:
Directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Session 9), the thriller focuses on a 911 operator, Jordan (Berry), who takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl played by Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) who has just been abducted, which causes Jordan to confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life.
Also featuring in the cast are Justina Machado (Final Destination II), Jose Zuniga (Twilight), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), Morris Chestnut (Ladder 49) and WWE star David Otunga.
The film was orginally called The Hive, however this was subsequently changed; there’s no obvious reason from the film’s summary as to how this could fit in to the plot, so perhaps this mystery can provide some added drama as audiences try to figure out the reasoning behind the initial title.
The Call is due for release in North America on March 15th.
