In the redemption movie, Halle plays Jackie Justice, a disgraced former MMA fighter who needs to get back into the ring to make her six-year-old son proud, as well as conquering her own athletic challenges.
Following the positive reaction that Bruised has received, the Oscar-winning actress has been offered a "multi-title deal" that will allow her to produce and star in several feature films for Netflix, according to Variety.
"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 in a statement.
"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."
The streaming service is just as excited to work with her on future projects as she is, calling her "incredible" and they are "thrilled" to be working with her again.
"There are few people with a career like Halle Berry. She's an award-winning actress, producer and as audiences saw this past week, she's an incredible director," Stuber said. "We're thrilled to be in her corner as she delivers power in front of and behind the camera in Bruised and look forward to telling more stories together."
Outside the new Netflix deal, she will also soon be seen in two Netflix originals, including the sci-fi project The Mothership, coming from Bridge of Spies writer Matt Charman, who is also making his directorial debut.
She is also starring in Our Man from Jersey, which also features Mark Wahlberg and is described as a 'Blue-collar James Bond movie'.
