Halle Berry Touches Down In Montreal For 'Moonfall'

Halle Berry arrived in Montreal earlier this week, where she is scheduled to begin production on 'Moonfall' with director Roland Emmerich later this month.

Per government rules for travellers entering Canada, the actress is currently in quarantine ahead of filming and it was announced that Stanley Tucci and John Bradley will join her, Patrick Wilson and Charlie Plummer in the space epic. Read more details below:

Deadline: Slated to begin production this month in Montreal, the plot is set off by a mysterious force that knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact, and against all odds, a ragtag team launches an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love and risking everything to land on the lunar surface and save our planet from annihilation

Tucci will play Tom Phillips, a wealthy car dealer, who’s married to Brian Harper’s (Wilson) ex-wife, while Bradley is KC Houseman, an eccentric and unkempt genius who discovers that the moon has fallen out of its orbit. Josh Gad was originally cast in the role of KC Houseman but exited the project due to a scheduling conflict.

Emmerich, who co-wrote the script with Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen, is financing and producing the pic via his Centropolis Entertainment banner. Kloser is also producing through his company, Street Entertainment. Executive producers are Dennis Wang, James Wang, J.P. Pettinato, Marco Shepherd, Ute Emmerich, Carsten Lorenz, and Stuart Ford.
