Halle Berry's feature film directorial debut Bruised is on its way to getting scooped up by Netflix for nearly $20M.
The streaming colossus has entered the last stages of the acquisition negotiations for the MMA film, according to Deadline.
As news of the deal broke the 54-year-old superstar tweeted a link to a Variety story and wrote: 'I am speechless. Thank you @Netflix for believing in my vision, cannot wait for y’all to finally see #BruisedTheMovie.'
Coup: Halle Berry's feature film directorial debut Bruised is on its way to getting scooped up by Netflix for eight figures
Although the movie premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, Netflix was allowed to have a look at her film beforehand.
The streamer apparently liked what they saw as Deadline sources say they are planning to fork over somewhat short of $20million for the movie.
Bruised's page on the film festival's website explains: 'This film is screening as a work in progress,' so it may have changed a bit by the time it gets to Netflix.
TIFF is occurring September 10 to 19 with a hybrid of virtual and in-person events, though industry members and media are barred from screenings, IndieWire reports.
