Halle Berry becomes a member of ‘Shoe Addicts Anonymous’
HollywoodNews.com: Oscar winner Halle Berry is scheduled to headline “Shoe Addicts Anonymous,” an adaptation of Beth Harbison’s novel.
The actress has been M.I.A. at the multiplex since bombing in the 2007 melo-drama “Things We Lost in the Fire.” “Shoes” brings Berry into the fold of chick pics.
Directed by Paul Weiland (“Made of Honor”), “Shoes” follows Berry’s character, an agoraphobic person, who is addicted to buying shoes online. She’ll be one of four Chicago women who have a fetish for size 7.5 shoes.
Kristen Buckley and Brian Regan of “How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days” fame wrote the screenplay. That 2003 Kate Hudson film generated over $177 million at the worldwide box office.
Film does not have a studio distributor as of yet and is being financed by Parallel.
Berry is expected to go before the cameras on “Shoes” before starring on Broadway in Katori Hall’s “The Mountaintop.” In that stage piece, Berry portrays a hotel maid who interfaces with Martin Luther King Jr. prior to his assassination.
