Halle Berry is turning director with Bruised, a mixed martial arts-themed action drama in which she will star as a disgraced fighter trying to win back lost glory, Deadline reported.
Berry will play Jackie ‘Justice’, a down-and-out MMA fighter who has to rebuild her life as a mother as well as face a rising MMA star inside the ring.
Production begins in March 2019. Berry is presently working on John Wick 3, the third installment of the highly popular action film franchise starring Keanu Reeves. For Bruised, Berry will work with the fight choreography team from the John Wick films.
