“Soooooo happy to announce the first all-female hip-hop project – The Music of bruised on Netflix, “she wrote in a short video featuring the list of female artists performing on the soundtrack.” Never been a scared slut! “
Fans showed their excitement for the upcoming album on Twitter, telling the star how excited they were to watch the fighter and listen to the all-female album.
“I support !!! Cardi is going hard for the female rappers. Thanks Halle”, a user wrote.
bruised, which will be released on Netflix on November 17, will be the Oscar-winning actor’s first director. She stars in the independent drama as Jackie Justice, an MMA fighter who has been shunned from the limelight but has an itchy desire to fight her way into the ring again. The now stunning 54-year-old actress recount Entertainment Weekly that when she first read the script, she couldn’t see how the role would suit her.
“They gave me the screenplay and I loved the story, but it was written for a white Irish Catholic woman in her twenties,” Berry said. “I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so I thought, is there a way it could be reinvented for someone like me? Because I think I have an idea that might actually work – which makes her a Black Woman, someone who fights for one last chance rather than another. “
“When you’re young we all have a chance, that’s a dime. But when you’re at a certain stage in life, it becomes something more impactful and meaningful, doesn’t it? So about six months later, when [Lively] decided in her day that it wasn’t for her, I went to see the producer, Basil Iwanyk, that I had just done John wick 3 with, and gave him my land. And he said, ‘Great, we love this idea. Now go find a director, ”she added.
The biting tale would prove to be a difficult feat for Berry, whose catalog includes several action films like Catwoman and X Men. She shares with the outlet that she broke two ribs on set during her first few days on set, however, that didn’t deter her. Berry decided she would keep rolling with the punches.
“I told the director about it, they told the insurance company. We had to shut down for months and it was a big ordeal. On top of that, because it was an independent film, we didn’t didn’t have a big budget, ”she said. “The director in me said, ‘I didn’t come this far and didn’t work so hard to get home.'”
