Berry, Gugino Sign For “New Year’s Eve”

Carla Gugino has jumped onboard, while Halle Berry has rejoined Garry Marshall’s ensemble rom-com “New Year’s Eve” for New Line says The Hollywood Reporter

The story follows various couples whose lives criss-cross over the holiday. Gugino will play a doctor in a subplot involving Jessica Biel and Seth Meyers trying to be the couple to deliver the first baby of the New Year.

Berry pulled out of the project last month due to a custody battle over her young daughter, with Katherine Heigl stepping in to replace her. With the judge ruling in her favor, Berry will travel to New York to play the slightly smaller role of a nurse in the film.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Zac Efron, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michelle and Robert De Niro also star. Shooting is currently underway in New York.
