Halle Berry To Lead “Jagged Edge” Remake

Halle Berry is being eyed to lead a remake of Richard Marquand’s 1985 thriller “Jagged Edge” at Sony Pictures.

Glenn Close, Jeff Bridges and Robert Loggia starred in the Joe Eszterhas-penned original which begins when a San Francisco heiress is brutally murdered in her remote beach house and her newspaper publisher husband (Bridges) is accused of committing the gruesome crime.

The publisher hires a lawyer (Close) to defend him, and their chemistry spills into an affair even as they lawyer can’t shake the feeling something isn’t quite right with the case.

Matti Leshem and Doug Belgrad will produce the new take with a search now underway for a writer to draft the new version which has become a priority project.
