Morris Chestnut and Halle Berry (whose acceptance in the roll meant actress Regina Hall got bumped) will star in the thriller “When The Bough Breaks” for Screen Gems. The “Bough”attachment is part of a three-picture deal between Chestnut and Screen Gems. He will also star and produce Screen Gems’ “The Syndicate” with Cliff Dorfman writing and will star in the previously announced Screen Gems thriller “The Perfect Guy” along with Sanaa Lathan and Michael Ealy.
Casting is underway in New Orleans.
The story follows a professional couple that is unable to conceive a child and decides to hire a young blue collar woman as a surrogate, before she develops a psychotic fixation on the husband. Cassar is best known for his work on the TV series “24.”
