The Hollywood Reporter notes Oscar-winner Berry will star alongside Josh Gad in Moonfall, about our closest celestial neighbor's potential crash into Earth. 

The trade explains that Berry will reportedly play a former astronaut-turned NASA administrator who learns that a previous mission she was a part of could have something to do with a mysterious force that knocked the moon out of orbit. Gad will play an eccentric scientist who learns about the potential disaster. 

Lionsgate is producing the film; Berry's last film with the studio was the hit John Wick: Chapter 3 -- Parabellum.
