Oscar winner Halle Berry is set to make her directorial debut on Riverstone’s mixed martial arts action drama “Bruised” which she’ll also star in.
Michelle Rosenfarb penned the film in which Berry plays Jackie ‘Justice’, a disgraced MMA fighter who has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting.
When six-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world, and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves.
Berry, currently in production on “John Wick: Chapter 3,” will use that franchise’s fight choreography team for her project which will be produced by Basil Iwanyk and Linda Gottlieb. Filming kicks off in March.
