Netflix Offers Halle Berry $20M For New Movie

Halle Berry is gearing up to release her new film, “Bruised,” receiving a massive offer from streaming giant Netflix that left the actress and newbie director “speechless.”

Variety reports the streaming service is prepared to spend close to $20 million for the worldwide distribution rights to Berry’s directorial debut, currently screening as a work-in-progress at the Toronto Film Festival.

In response to the reported offer, Berry, 54, took to Twitter to share her astonishment over the generous figure.

“I am speechless. Thank you @netflix for believing in my vision, cannot wait for y’all to finally see #BruisedTheMovie.”

“Bruised” finds Berry both behind and in front of the camera, as the director also stars in the drama about a washed-up MMA fighter struggling for redemption as both an athlete and a mother. The Oscar-winner previously spoke to Variety about the challenges she faced in producing the film, including breaking two ribs during filming.

“I didn’t want to stop because I had prepared for so long,” Berry said. “We had rehearsed; we were ready. So my mind, my director’s mind, was just — keep going. And I compartmentalized that, and I just kept going: ‘I’m not going to stop. I’ve come too far. I’m going to act as if this isn’t hurting. I’m going to will myself through it.’ And so we did.”
