    Default Possible star announced for J2 Picture's upcoming film "Who is Doris Payne?"




    Moviehole.com is reporting that Academy Award winner Halle Berry, best known as Storm in the "X-men" film franchise, has signed for the title role in Justin Berfield's J2 Picture's upcoming film, "Who is Doris Payne?" based on the true story of international jewel thief, Doris Payne, currently in jail in Las Vegas. J2 secured the rights to Doris' story last year and the film will most likely be the company's next film, after completion of the Jessica Simpson led film "Blonde Ambition," which is currently in post-production.

    Justin has not personally confirmed Halle Barry's involvement in the film but when he does I'll let you guys know.

    No director or production schedule has been announced as of yet.

    The real Doris Payne is now 75-years-old. Soooo... I am guessing this movie will be about when she was younger, since Halle Berry is the star?

    It will, no worries. There is no confirmation from Justin or J2 or from Halle's management that she has signed on with the project but as the project is still in development, it could be some time before casting is officially announced.
