Halle Berry MMA Movie "Bruised" Set to Film in Newark. It's Her Directorial Debut

Halle Berry is producing, starring in, and making her feature directorial debut on MMA drama “Bruised,” which is planned for a March start of production.

Berry will direct from a script by Michelle Rosenfarb, portraying a disgraced MMA fighter who has to face one of the rising stars of the MMA world and deal with the return of her 6-year-old son to the mother he deserves.

She works with the team that executes fight choreography for the “John Wick” series.

Berry first broke into show business in 1989 on the series “Living Dolls” and was cast in her first movie role in Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever.” She became the first black woman to win the best actress Oscar for her performance in 2001’s “Monster’s Ball.

Berry appeared in last year’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” and the thriller “Kidnap.” She’s starring in “John Wick 3” and is attached to play the key defense role in Sony’s remake of the 1985 thriller “Jagged Edge.”

Halle has been putting in a lot of work to prepare herself for this role for her upcoming movie "Bruised", including lots of training which has ultimately paid off tremendously.
