Halle Berry’s “The Mothership” removed from release schedule
Halle Berry’s “The Mothership” has become the latest victim in a Hollywood trend of canceling completed movies and having them taken off the release schedule. Well, principal photography was completed back in 2021, although the film underwent apparently numerous post-production delays. They are also saying that it still needs extensive reshoots, but the issue is that the children in the movie have aged since the filming wrapped.
Well, Berry hasn’t commented publicly on the cancelation of her new film, though she will stay in business with Netflix even beyond her deal with them. She will next be seen in Netflix’s “The Union,” starring alongside Mark Wahlberg, Mike Colter, and J.K. Simmons, which is in post-production.
Hey, never count Halle out. That girl always rises.
