Halle Berry could be getting her thriller kicks again in The Hive.

The Oscar-winning actress and former Bond girl - who most recently co-starred in ensemble comedy drama New Year's Eve - is said to be starring in the suspense thriller by The Machinist director Brad Anderson, reports Variety.

The 45-year-old, who previously dropped out due to scheduling conflicts but has re-joined now that the start date has changed, is up for the role of an emergency operator, who must face her own fears in order to save a teenage girl from a disturbed killer.

Shooting is scheduled to start in Los Angeles in June.

Halle will next be seen starring opposite her real-life fiance Olivier Martinez in action thriller Dark Tide, before appearing in the Wachowskis and Tom Twyker's big-screen adaptation of Cloud Atlas, in which she plays multiple roles.
