Halle Berry Wants To Play Angela Davis

Aretha Franklin wanted Halle Berry (left) to play her in a biopic. Halle, wisely, passed, in part because she doesn’t look a thing like Re-Re, not even the young Re-Re. What Halle wants is to play Angela Davis (right). Halle’s been talking about her ‘dream’ of playing activist Davis for a while now and in her recent interview with InStyle magazine, she brought it up once again, hinting that she’d like to make a film that “explores Angela’s Communist beliefs. Her story is so fascinating. I would love to bring it to the screen. I would pick her brain to have a better understanding of her affiliation with the Black Panthers and that period from the 1960s.”
