Halle Berry is certainly no stranger to the world of action cinema. The former Bond girl has participated in a number of high-octane, big-budget motion pictures over the past few years, including “X-Men”, “Catwoman”, and “Swordfish”, just to name a few. In other words, the actress is well-versed in the dangers generally associated with this sort of production. Although numerous precautions are taken to insure the safety of everyone involved, accidents are going to happen, regardless of how much you prepare for such things.
While partaking in a fight scene on the set of “Session 9” director Brad Anderson’s upcoming suspense/thriller “The Hive”, Berry suffered a minor injury, according to the folks over at TMZ. The “Executive Decision” co-star was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center around 10pm on Tuesday night to address the issue, though nothing serious is currently being reported. Furthermore, Berry’s representative has stated the actress will continue to work on Anderson’s picture, which is good news for the cast and crew, I’m sure. No harm, no foul.
The Associated Press has reportedly made several attempts to contact the film’s producers, namely Troika Pictures and WWE Studios, for comment, though no one from either camp has made a statement regarding the matter as of this posting. In fact, Berry’s spokesperson refused to give the location of the hospital she was admitted to, though, being TMZ, they managed to work around this particular roadblock. Sneaky, sneaky.
“The Hive”, which also stars Abigail Breslin, Tara Platt, and Evie Thompson, features Berry as a emergency operator who must confront a sadistic killer from her past in order to save a young girl’s life. If this particular endeavor is as engaging as Anderson’s previous efforts, audiences can expect something worthwhile. Berry’s last flick, director John Stockwell’s “Dark Tide”, was released in 2011. Look for “The Hive” to drop next year.
