Halle Berry has her eyes set on the MMA fan base. The former bond girl is set to take a plunge into direction and her first film will be based on Mixed Martial Arts. This is as per the report on Hollywood Reporter.
The film will be titled ‘Bruised’ and will also see Berry as an actress. She will be playing Jackie “Justice”, an MMA fighter in the movie. The plot will revolve around Jackie who is confronted by her 6-year-old son, Manny.
The movie will progress through the mother-son relationship and the MMA career of the character played by Berry. For the project, Berry will be teaming up with John Wick producer Basil Iwanyk and his Thunder Road Pictures. Meanwhile, the film is written by Michelle Rosenfarb.
The cage-fighting single mother plot has plenty of potential and it would be interesting to see how Berry manages to pull off the story. Apart from the mainstream film audience, the MMA fans will also be looking to dissect the film which adds extra pressure on the shoulders of the Academy Award Winning Actress.
