Berry also addressed the news herself on Twitter, responding to a Variety article about the reported deal, writing: "I am speechless".

Berry plays Jackie Justice, a disgraced MMA fighter who has failed at the one thing she's ever been good at - fighting, according to Deadline.

Halle stars as an ex-fighter who has left the MMA business and lost custody of her son, but the film finds her locked in a struggle to regain her child and career. The film has a Rocky-like plot of failure and redemption. Netflix has not confirmed the acquisition.

Berry's "Bruised", an MMA drama that is screening as a work-in-progress at the Toronto Film Festival, is stitching up a sale close to $20 million, insiders familiar with negotiations said. "We had rehearsed; we were ready". The script was written by Michelle Rosenfarb. So my mind, my director's mind, was just - keep going.

No word on will Netflix will begin streaming Bruised yet. Despite winning the 2002 Oscar trophy for best actress for her performance in "Monster's Ball", the movie offers didn't come.
