Halle Berry & Penelope Cruz Join 'Gothika' Cast

Oscar winner Halle Berry is reuniting with her Swordfish producer Joel Silver on Warner Bros. Pictures' supernatural thriller "Gothika", says the Hollywood Reporter.

Penelope Cruz is said to have also come on board to star in the project. Although no director is on board, production aims to begin in March for a fall release.

Written by Sebastian Gutierrez, "Gothika" centers on a female psychiatrist (Berry) who wakes up as a patient in the asylum for the criminally insane where she works and finds that she is being charged with a murder she has no memory of committing. As she wrestles to regain her memory, she finds that she is the pawn of a vengeful spirit. Cruz will play Chloe, a charismatic yet deranged patient at the facility.
