Halle Berry '90% certain' to return for new 'X-Men' movie
The film's swelling cast already includes McAvoy, Fassbender, McKellen and Stewart
Halle Berry has revealed she is "90% sure" she will be returning for the new X-Men movie.
Berry appeared in the first three X-Men films as Storm, a mutant with the ability to manipulate the weather, before the trilogy was rebooted with a brand new cast for 2011's X Men: First Class.
However, director Bryan Singer is planning to unite X-Men stars old and new for the next instalment, Days Of Future Past, which is due to begin shooting this April. Last November, he announced that the film has roles for X-Men veterans Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen as well as First Class stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.
Hugh Jackman's Wolverine also has a confirmed role and Ellen Page, Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore are signed up too. Now Berry has said she will "most likely" be joining them. The actress told Shadow and Act that "a few details are still being negotiated" but "it's highly unlikely that talks are going to suddenly and horribly fall apart" this close to filming.
Meanwhile, Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is a brand new addition to the cast and will play the film's main villain. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on July 18 2014.
