Roland Emmerich is certainly gathering the names for his latest disaster movie, Moonfall. The latest person to join the cast is Halle Berry.
After saving the planet from aliens in INDEPENDENCE DAY, stomping all over New York City with GODZILLA, and forcing the President’s staff into hysterics for WHITE HOUSE DOWN, director/screenwriter/producer Roland Emmerich is at it again with MOONFALL, a science fiction epic that now has Academy Award winner Halle Berry set to star.
Word of Berry signing on to lead the upcoming film was announced Tuesday afternoon, along with the details of her role. For the film, Berry will play a NASA astronaut-turned-administrator whose previous space mission holds a clue about an impending catastrophe. She will be joined in the cast by Josh Gad.
In MOONFALL, a mysterious force 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.
