Halle Berry is all set to make her directorial debut with the mixed martial arts drama Bruised. The 52-year-old Oscar winner will also star in and produce the project, reported Variety.
The story follows a disgraced MMA fighter who was one of the rising stars of the MMA world. She has to deal with many challenges while trying to prove herself, including the return of her 6-year-old son.
The film’s script has been written by Michelle Rosenfarb. Berry, who will be next seen in John Wick 3, will work with the same team that executes fight choreography for the Keanu Reeves-starrer series.
Basil Iwanyk will also produce the film alongside Linda Gottlieb.
