*Halle Berry has signed on to lead the ensemble cast of “Shoe Addicts Anonymous,” reports Deadline.
Based on Beth Harbison’s best-selling novel, the story follows four Chicago women from different ethnic backgrounds who share a love of shoes and have the same size feet. The women eventually form a support group and become “sole sisters.”
Berry will play an agoraphobic who shops online to satisfy her shoe obsession.
“Shoe Addicts” will be Berry’s first comedy role since 1998’s Bulworth.
British filmmaker Paul Weiland (“Made Of Honor”) is directing from a script by Kristen Buckley and Brian Regan.
