Halle Berry circling ‘Surrogate’

Actress in talks to star in Fox thriller

Halle Berry is in talks to star in thriller “The Surrogate” for 20th Century Fox.

Helmer Paul Verhoeven is onboard to develop the project, which revolves around a couple who hire a surrogate to carry their child and find out mid-term that the surrogate is insane.

Project would mark Berry’s return to the bigscreen after having a baby last year. She hasn’t starred in a film since 2007’s “Things We Lost in the Fire” opposite Benicio Del Toro.

“The Surrogate,” which had been in development at the now-shuttered Fox Atomic, would also reteam Berry with producer Ralph Winter, who produced Fox’s “X-Men” trilogy, in which the actress starred.

Rod and Bruce Taylor (“The Brave One”) penned the screenplay, which is based on a novel by Kathryn Mackel.

Winter is producing alongside Susana Zepeda, Robin Guthrie and Deborah Giarratana.

Berry is repped by ICM.
