In order to save a young girl’s life, an emergency operator must confront a killer from her past…

It’s been announced that Morris Chestnut has been cast as the male lead, opposite Halle Berry, in Sony’s thriller The Hive.  Morris Chestnut will play Halle Berry’s love interest in the film, who’s also a cop.  Brad Anderson is directing the film, which co-stars Abigail Breslin.  Principal photography has already begun.

So what’s The Hive about:

Set against the backdrop of a 911 call center, this fast-paced suspense pic will find Berry playing a 911 emergency operator who takes a call from a teenage girl (Breslin) who has been abducted and carried away in the trunk of a car.  Berry’s character must face her own fears in order to save the teenage girl from a disturbed killer.  The kidnapping plays out in real time as the pair work together to track down the killer.

Chestnut has joined the cast of Kick-Ass 2, playing the guardian for the character played by Chloe Moretz.  You can also look for Morris in the new comedy Identity Theft, which stars T.I., Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy.  In the comedy, Morris will a Boston police detective.

It’s been some time since we’ve seen Morris Chestnut in a leading role; good to know he’s being cast in potential hits.
