Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry is ready to once again show her first-class acting on screen. The beauty has signed on to topline DreamWorks Pictures' true-life tale entitled "Class Act", Variety has reported.
Here Berry will portray a teacher from Reno Nevada named Tierney Cahill who took her sixth-grade students' challenge to run for Congress in the 2000 elections. What's interesting from this is that the actress' billing is considered to be a unique move for Hollywood as Cahill in real life is actually a white woman.
In the meantime, Doug Atchison has been assigned to both write and direct the project with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas producing for the studio alongside Underground Films. DreamWorks is eyeing to begin production in May or June next year.
Berry, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, initially began her acting career through small screen features before encountering her film debut in "Jungle Fever." She is currently filming another DreamWorks production of "Things We Lost in the Fire" together with Benicio Del Toro, David Duchovny, and Alison Lohman.
