“Kingsman 2” Enlists Halle Berry as Head of the CIA

“X-Men” star Halle Berry is in talks with Fox to join “Kingsman 2” as the head of the CIA. Deadline reports that Fox is negotiating with Berry for a two-picture deal.

Berry is no stranger to comic book films. She starred as Storm in Bryan Singer’s original “X-Men” trilogy as well as “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and played Selina Kyle in “Catwoman.” She also appeared in the lead role of “Extant.”

The first “Kingsman” film was based on the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic book series “The Secret Service.” The comic does not have a sequel, making the film more of an open canvas. The “Kingsman” film defied box office expectations and made $414.4 million worldwide, from a $81 million production budget.

Matthew Vaughn is on board to return as director for Fox’s “Kingsman” sequel, with Taron Egerton back to star. The film is scheduled to shoot this summer.
