History, Halle Berry Developing ‘Hannibal’ Miniseries

'GoldenEye,' 'Constant Gardener' scribe Jeffrey Caine to pen the mini

History and Halle Berry have teamed to develop “Hannibal,” a miniseries centering on famed general Hannibal Barca in the Second Punic War.

Beginning in 264 BC, “Hannibal” takes viewers through the Second Punic War between Carthage and Rome, exploring the relationship between Hannibal and his archrival Scipio Africanus. Despite their fiercely opposed allegiances, the two are brought together and grow to respect each other as brothers.

Berry will exec produce the mini, with Jeffrey Caine serving as scribe. Project will be a co-production between A+E Studios and Red Arrow Entertainment.

“Hannibal was not only the greatest African general to ever live,” said Berry, “he may have been the greatest general, period. His story is an intricate and captivating ride and I’m thrilled to get this project off the ground with our partners at History.”

History miniseries builds on Berry’s small screen plans, as the actress was recently cast in CBS project “Extant.” Steven Spielberg is exec producing the hourlong Eye drama.
