Halle Berry rejoins cast of New Year’s Eve

2011-02-17 07:16

Los Angeles – Halle Berry has rejoined the cast of the ensemble romantic comedy New Year’s Eve after pulling out of the project last month to fight a custody battle for her young daughter.

At that time, Katherine Heigl stepped in and replaced Berry. But Berry was freed up this week when a judge in Los Angeles ruled in her favour, making it possible for her to travel with her daughter to New York, where Garry Marshall is shooting New Year’s Eve.

The cast also includes Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michelle and Robert De Niro.

Additionally, Carla Gugino has closed a deal to join the New Line project, which follows a number of couples whose lives cross paths on New Year’s Eve.

Gugino, whose character is a doctor, will mainly play opposite Jessica Biel and Seth Meyers.

Gugino, who plays one of David Duchovny’s love interests in the current season of Californication, returns to theaters next month in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.

In June, she’ll be seen opposite Jim Carrey in the family film Mr Popper’s Penguins.
