"Across the Universe's" Julie Taymor shakes up Shakespeare with her adaptation of "The Tempest," retrofitting the fantastical tale with a female lead, casting Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren in what is usually the male role of Prospero.

Halle Berry is amazed with fellow Oscar winner Helen Mirren's physique.
