'Bruised': Halle Berry Will Make Feature Directorial Debut With Mixed Martial Arts Action-Drama, Will Also Star In Film

Halle Berry is stepping in the director's chair.

She'll direct and star in the upcoming film Bruised, which will be in her feature directional debut.

The film, written by Michelle Rosenfarb, will follow "Jackie 'Justice,' a disgraced MMA fighter who has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting. When 6-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves."

For prep, Berry will reteam with the fight choreographers she's worked with for the upcoming John Wick 3. 

Production will begin next year.

Berry is also starring in a Jagged Edge remake.

Deadline first reported this news.
