Halle Berry has spoken about the Jinx movie and confirms

Jinx Movie Update - Berry Talks About The Script
21st July 2003
A couple of months have passed since the last news on the "Jinx"
spin-off movie, but life has been sparked into the project again
with news from Halle Berry and the script.
E! Entertainment first rumoured the script
to be complete on 7th May 2003. A week later Bond co-producer
G. Wilson went on the record by saying "MGM and ourselves
and Halle thought it might be a good idea to make a Jinx film,
so we`re just kicking around some ideas with the writers, to see
if we can do something with that".
Berry Talks About The Script
Now thanks to an interview Garth Franklin from movie news
completed with Halle Berry at the annual San Diego Comic
Convention, there is official confirmation that a script
exists and production is moving forwards.
When questioned about whether she was hopeful of a Jinx
movie she said, "I'm hoping, we just got the script last
night, the first script and I hear its really really good."
The script is rumoured to have been written by Neal Purvis
and Robert Wade - the duo who also wrote "The World Is Not
Enough", "Die Another Day" and Bond spoof "Johnny English".
No Female Bond
"I've been talking to the writers about it and they had
a great idea about who she is, and where she comes from"
"I think it won't be like Bond, its not supposed to be
a female Bond, but it is very edgy and I think we'll have
some elements of humour that Bond has because Jinx has that
in the Bond movie but it won't be like Bond".
Berry already has "Catwoman" lined up for filming and "The
Guide" announced, indicating that the Jinx film could be
ready for release around summer 2005.
