Halle Berry eyes ‘Tide’ ride

Actress in advanced talks to star in action-thriller

Halle Berry is in advanced talks to star in action-thriller “Dark Tide” for helmer Clark Johnson (“S.W.A.T.”).

“Twilight” producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will shepherd “Dark” via their Temple Hill banner.

Social Capital Films is arranging financing for the $15 million-$20 million pic. Company’s Martin Shore and Christopher Tuffin produce along with Tax Credit Finance’s Matthew Chausse and Plum Pictures’ Celine Rattray.

Project, penned by Amy Sorlie, concerns a diving instructor who returns to the deep after a near-fatal incident with a Great White shark. “Dark” is set to lense in South Africa later this year.

The Steel Co.’s John Baca exec produces, as does lit manager Sukee Chew, who helped develop the script.

IM Global will handle international sales.
