No stranger to action films, Berry (“X-Men”, “Catwoman”, “Die Another Day”) is currently at work on action movie “John Wick 3”, where she stars opposite Keanu Reeves.

“John Wick” producer Basil Iwanyk will join Berry for “Bruised”, as will the fight choreography team from the action franchise.

Berry made history as the first (and only) black woman to win the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in 2001’s “Monster’s Ball”.
