Beat it, Katherine Heigl! Halle Berry’s back on to star in the upcoming romantic comedy New Year’s Eve.
Now that Gabriel Aubry has withdrawn his petition for custody of Nahla, Halle is free to take on the gig again, E! News reports. She backed out of the film when she thought the custody case would take up too much of her time.
A judge decided earlier this week that she would be allowed to bring Nahla with her to New York City to shoot New Year’s Eve. Gabriel will travel out there for visits with their daughter.
The custody battle isn’t over just yet. Gabriel is still seeking a paternity action against Halle, which will be settled in family court.
With Halle’s return to New Year’s Eve, Katherine’s been bumped to another role in the film.
