Sarah Jessica Parker is set to join New Year’s Eve, the follow-up to Valentine’s Day.
Halle Berry, who has received a Golden Globe nomination for her turn in Frankie And Alice, and Zac Efron are also in talks to join the all-star ensemble drama, which already includes Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Biel, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Like its predecessor, New Year’s Eve, which is directed by Garry Marshall, tells intertwining stories of a group of New Yorkers and their bittersweet drama and romance over the course of the big day.
Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica is tipped to play Abigail’s mum, who is too dependent on her daughter for company.
Halle would portray a caterer who runs into an ex-flame, while Zac is expected to play a courier who tries to fulfil Michelle’s New Year’s Eve resolutions in exchange for tickets to a big party.
The movie was initially given a shoot date of mid-December but is now expected to begin in February in New York.
