Halle Berry Signs Two-Picture Deal For 'Kingsman' Sequels

Halle Berry signed a two-picture deal over our hiatus to star in the upcoming 'Kingsman' sequel, 'Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle', where she is slated to play Ginger , the head of the CIA. She has already completed a portion of the filming in London and it is currently unclear whether she has more filming to do for the film, which hits theaters on June 16th.

Read the initial details of her casting via an exclusive Deadline report beneath:

Halle Berry is in talks to join Kingsman 2, the Matthew Vaughn-directed sequel to the 2015 hit that launched Taron Egerton and grossed over $415 million globally for Fox. Berry is in talks to play the head of the CIA, and the discussion is for a two-picture deal, I’m told. This returns Berry to the Fox fold, where she played Storm in four X-Men films. Berry most recently starred in the Luis Prieto-directed thriller Kidnap, which is scheduled for May release by Relativity.

Vaughn and Jane Goldman wrote the script for the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service, and reports have Julianne Moore also in the film. Kingsman 2 is set for release on June 16, 2017. Berry is repped by CAA and Management 360.

The star-studded cast also includes Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Pedro Pascal, Vinnie Jones and Elton John.
