Halle Berry signs multi-title deal with Netflix as 'Bruised' hits No 1 on streamer
The Academy award-winning actress launched her directorial debut on the streamer in November.
Berry's newly unveiled partnership comes amid the success of her directorial debut 'Bruised' which according to a recent report by Netflix, has risen to the number one spot in the United States. The film currently ranks as the first choice in 71 countries and was watched for 47.7 million hours in its first five days of release.
“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.”
In the sports themed drama, Berry plays an MMA fighter who decides to reclaim her power in both the ring and in her life. Away from the new deal, Berry is also set to star in two Netflix originals including a Sci-fi to be directed by Matt Charman.
