Halle Berry will be taking on the role of a runaway bride in a forthcoming comedy feature titled Mother, set to go into production early next year.

The 46-year-old actress will also be sharing production credits with her manager Vincent Cirrincione, as well as Emilio Ferrari, whose company Entertainment 7 will finance the project.

The story is set around a bride who leaves her mobster fiancée at the altar and has to go on the run. She pretends to be the mother of a young man to prevent capture but her own wild antics threaten to expose her.

Co-stars for the film have not yet been announced and a director has not been attached.

Halle’s last film The Call, exceeded its 13 million dollar budget, grossing $51,872,378, while the slapstick humor film Movie 43 brought in $8,828,771, exceeding its 6 million dollar estimated cost.

She returns as Storm in X-Men: Days of Future Past on May 23, 2014!
