Berry and Thornton reunite


Mar. 29, 2007 (New Orleans)—Lift Productions will begin shooting Tulia in New Orleans in April, starring Oscar favorites Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thornton in the leading roles. This marks the first time since Monster's Ball that the talented duo has worked together.

The story, based on a book by Nate Blakeslee, is set in Tulia, Texas, where Berry is an attorney who "works on behalf of a group of local black men who are wrongly convicted of their involvement in a drug ring.”

Producers for Tulia include Brian Robbins & Mike Tollin. Robbins used to be an actor on Head of the Class, and has had great success as a producer of several hit TV shows including Smallville, One Tree Hill, and Coach Carter.
