We’ve got our hands on a first official picture of Bruised, the upcoming drama movie directed by Halle Berry based on a script by Michelle Rosenfarb and starring Halle Berry as a disgraced MMA fighter:
“Jackie ‘Justice’ (Halle Berry), 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 own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world, and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves.”
Damn, what happened to my favorite James Bond girl?
Besides Halle Berry, the cast also includes Adan Canto, Sheila Atim, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Shamier Anderson.
The film has yet to get an official release date.
Stay tuned with us for more details about the movie Bruised.
Update – Another plot synopsis reads as follows:
“Jackie Justice’ (Halle Berry) has been working multiple jobs and barely scraping by ever since losing an important match years ago. When her boyfriend, Desi (Adan Canto), manages to trick her into going to an underground fight, her passion for the sport is reignited. As Jackie prepares to go back to “the only thing she is good at,” the son she once abandoned is dropped off at her doorstep. Confronted by her past choices and traumas, Jackie will have to fight to reclaim the two most meaningful things she has walked away from: six-year-old Manny and an MMA title.”
