Published: Saturday 12th Sep 2020 by Ryan

Halle Berry just landed a landmark salary for her directorial debut, ‘Bruised.’ 

Full story below…

Netflix napped the rights to the movie before it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 12. Deadline reports that the deal is around $20 million.

The film stars the Oscar winner, alongside Shamier Anderson and Adan Canto. The plot is centered around 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.”

There is currently no word as to when Netflix intends to release the movie. But it’s coming!

    Sorry sis but her movie kidnap was a joke. Stupid movie plot & her acting was overacting n dramatic. She was an eye candy tho.

    NOT TRUE: “Halle Berry just landed a landmark salary for her directorial debut.”

    Netflix is paying $20 million to acquire the film, which had a reported budget of $7 million. Berry is not making anywhere near $20 mil for directing. She’s not one of the film’s producers, but she is the lead (filling in for Blake Lively, who had to quit) and director. She will receive a good salary for double-duty, but that will only be a fraction of the film’s budget. And since the film is going to streaming, she won’t receive any back-end profit participation (i.e. a percentage of the gross, etc.)

      But she may get some of the $20million depending on what the contract states.

      Where is the rest of that $14 million going?

      • Misty Knight September 13, 2020

        The profit made, about $14 million, will go to those that financially invested in the film. It’s a nice return-on-the-dollar investment. They doubled their money.
