Bruised: Halle Berry To Star And Make Directorial Feature Debut With MMA Drama

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Halle Berry will be starring, as well as making her directorial feature debut, with mixed martial arts action drama Bruised.


Bruised is set to follow 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, appears on her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars in MMA and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves.


The script was written by Michelle Rosenfarb and the fight choreography is being done by the team behind the John Wick franchise, with John Wick producer Basil Iwanyk attached to produce under the Thunder Road Pictures banner, alongside Entertainment 360 and Linda Gottlieb. Erica Lee will serve as an executive producer, with the film being developed by EIS company.


Bruised is slated to begin production in March 2019.
