Halle Berry Returns to “New Year’s Eve” FilmPublished by Clay Cane on Thursday, February 17, 2011 at 10:00 am.
Due to a vicious custody battle that spread all over the tabloids and the Web, Oscar-winner Halle Berry bailed out of the film New Year’s Eve and Katherine Heigl replaced her. Now The Hollywood Reporter says that Berry is back on the project: “Berry was freed up this week when a judge in Los Angeles ruled in her favor, making it possible for her to travel with her daughter to New York, where Garry Marshall is shooting New Year’s Eve.”
However, Berry isn’t getting the role she originally had. Heigl is keeping her place and Berry will play a smaller role as a nurse.
In the vein of 2010’s lackluster Valentine’s Day, the Garry Marshall flick is padded with interconnecting plots and a massive all-star cast. Just to name a few: Ice Cube, Robert De Niro, Glee’s Lea Michele, Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker, and Sofia Vergara.
