Following the streaming release of her directorial debut of “Bruised”, Halle has signed a multi-picture deal with Netflix to not only produce, but star in, her own feature films.
According to Netflix, Halle’s “Bruised” debuted as one of their top rated films—amassing 47.7 million watch hours within the first 5 days of release and ranking as the first choice in 71 countries.
“My directorial debut, ‘Bruised,’ was a labor of love and I knew that Scott and Ted would treat it with great care,” Berry said of Netflix film head Scott Stuber and co-CEO Ted Sarandos.
“The Netflix team has not only been collaborative and creative, but extremely passionate and a delight to work with. I am beyond grateful for the partnership and look forward to telling more stories together.”
If you have yet to see the movie, “Bruised” is about a disgraced MMA fighter finding strength in overcoming the trials and tribulations in life and career.
“There are few people with a career like Halle Berry. She’s an award winning actress, producer and as audiences saw this past week, she’s an incredible director. We’re thrilled to be in her corner as she delivers power in front of and behind the camera in Bruised and look forward to telling more stories together,” added Stuber.
Outside of the new deal with Netflix, Halle actually has two more original movies coming to the streaming platform, including the science-fiction project, “The Mothership” and “Our Man from Jersey” which also stars Mark Wahlberg.
We see you doing your thing, Halle! Congrats!
