In a statement, Berry shared her excitement about her partnership with Netflix.

“My directorial debut, Bruised was a labor of love and I knew that Scott and Ted would treat it with great care,” Berry said of Netflix film head Scott Stuber and co-CEO Ted Sarandos. “The Netflix team has not only been collaborative and creative, but extremely passionate and a delight to work with. I am beyond grateful for the partnership and look forward to telling more stories together.”

Stuber praised Berry for her prowess as an actor, producer, and director.
