Halle Berry to star as a cougar?

Halle Berry is reportedly set to star in new film The Student

Halle Berry is being tipped to play a cougar who has an affair with her husband's 19-year-old summer intern in a new sexual thriller.

The 44-year-old actress has reportedly been offered the part in Basic Instinct director Paul Verhoeven's new film The Student, according to Collider.com

The movie, written by Wendy Diane Miller, is about a 19-year-old who takes a summer internship and then begins a dangerous affair with the boss's wife, named Miranda, who Halle has been asked to play.

The former Bond Girl was linked to a project of Verhoeven's called The Surrogate last year.

Dutch director Verhoeven has not made a film since the critically acclaimed Black Books, which he made in his native language in 2006.

Halle recently pulled out of a film job to prepare for a custody fight over her two-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-boyfriend French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, 35.

A spokeswoman for the Bond star said the Oscar-winner had backed out of a role in New Year's Eve, set to be filmed in New York this week, "due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter".

You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
