Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie are set to star in a new action thriller together? Say no more.

Deadline exclusively reported that both of the Hollywood vets are going to star in (and produce) a new action thriller titled Maude v Maude. (FYI, Warner Bros. won the rights to the film in a bidding war this past weekend.)

Though details about the upcoming movie’s storyline have remained hush-hush, the project has been compared to a “James Bond vs. Jason Bourne” narrative—and just by that description alone, we can already tell this film is going to be good. The film is set to take place in multiple locations around the world and the production schedule has yet to be announced. 

It’s hard to believe that Berry, 56, and Jolie, 47, have never worked together on a movie before (since both actresses are well-versed in the action movie genre). Throughout her career, Berry has starred in several action-packed thrillers like The Call, Kidnap, John Wick: Chapter 3, Moonfall and Bruised (you can watch the full movie on Netflix by subscribing for $15.49 a month). Oh, and how can we not mention the X-Men franchise?

Similarly, Jolie has worked on her fair share of action movies, including Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Salt and Eternals. But now, Maude v Maude will be the first movie project that both award-winning actresses will work on together.
