Robert Downey Jr. In Talks For 'Gothika' Role

Robert Downey Jr. is in negotiations to star opposite Halle Berry in the supernatural thriller Gothika for director Mathieu Kassovitz, says Hollywood Reporter.

Written by Sebastian Gutierrez, 'Gothika' stars Berry as a criminal psychologist who awakens to find herself a patient in her own mental institution with no memory of the murder she has apparently committed. As she struggles to reclaim her sanity, she finds herself the pawn of a vengeful spirit.

Penelope Cruz will play Chloe, a fellow inmate in the asylum. Downey will play a psychaitrist and colleague of Berry's character.

Production begins in April with a release date planned for October.
