Halle steps into Shoe Addicts Anon
Halle Berry is to play an agoraphobic footwear lover in Shoe Addicts Anonymous.
In her first comedy since 1998's Bulworth, the Catwoman star has signed on to lead an ensemble cast in the big-screen adaptation of Beth Harbison's best-selling novel, reported Deadline Hollywood.
The comedy, to be directed by British filmmaker Paul Weiland, will follow the lives of four Chicago women from different ethnic backgrounds with two common bonds - they are shoe addicts and they wear the same sizes.
They form a support group, swap heels and become sole sisters as their bond goes beyond footwear.
Halle will make Shoe Addicts Anonymous before she heads to Broadway in Katori Hall's The Mountaintop, where she will portray a hotel maid who delivers a meal to Martin Luther King Jr, on the evening before his assassination.
