Halle Berry is gearing up to release her new film, “Bruised”, receiving a massive offer from streaming giant Netflix that has left the starter actress and director “speechless”.
Variety reports that the streaming service is set to spend nearly $ 20 million on worldwide distribution rights for Berry’s directorial debut, currently showing as a work-in-progress at the Toronto Film Festival.
In response to the reported offer, Berry, 54, on Twitter to share his amazement at the generous figure.
“Bruised” sees Berry both behind and in front of the camera, as the director also stars in the drama about a struggling MMA fighter struggling for redemption as both an athlete and a mother. The Oscar winner previously spoke with Variety about the challenges she faced in producing the film, including breaking two ribs during filming.
“I didn’t want to quit because I had been preparing for so long,” Berry said. “We had tried; we were ready. So my mind, my director’s mind, was just … moving on. And I compartmentalized it, and I kept saying, ‘I’m not going to stop. I have gone too far. I will act as if this is not painful. I’ll get over it myself. “And so we did.”
