Halle Berry 'definitely' wants to direct another movie
Halle Berry "definitely" wants to direct another movie.
The ‘Moonfall’ star is desperate to “get behind the camera” after her directorial debut ‘Bruised’ - which she also starred in -came out on Netflix last year but is not yet sure about her next directing project.
The 55-year-old actress told Collider: “I am going to get behind the camera again. I can’t tell you what I’m doing for sure, for sure yet, but I definitely want to do it again.”
The Oscar-winner did reveal that she doesn't want an acting role in the project as she finds directing demanding enough.
Halle said: “And I definitely will not act in it this time. Directing is large enough.”
The ‘Catwoman’ star detailed the “tough” difficulties she had with financing 'Bruised'- which centres on the former UFC fighter Jackie Justice.
Halle said: “Finding financing was really tough. One day we had money, one day we didn’t. Even once, when we started to shoot, I was told countless times that we were going to be shut down because the money just wasn’t coming through the way it was promised. So you know, but do things like that because they’re labours of love. And I had to tell the story, so I had to keep pushing through but it was really challenging on many, many levels.”
She picked the movie - which tells the tale of Jackie trying to build a relationship with her son who she gave up for adoption as an infant - as it is a piece of work that constitutes "so much" of her.
Halle said: “Mainly because I directed it, starred in it, like it's so much of who I am. If you really want to get an idea of who I am, as the totality of who I am, as an artist, from behind the camera to in front of the camera.”
