It’s a flowing dream for Halle Berry fans.
The Oscar winner has reached an agreement for several films with Netflix that will see her star and produce upcoming works for the platform, the company announced on Tuesday.
Netflix released Berry’s directorial debut, “Bruised,” last month.
“The Netflix team was not only collaborative and creative, but they were extremely passionate and it was a pleasure to work with them,” Berry said in a statement. “I’m very grateful for the collaboration and I look forward to telling more stories together.”
Berry, 55, also starred in “Bruised” as a former mixed martial arts artist seeking redemption as a fighter in her personal life as well.
Netflix said the film was watched for almost 48 million hours in the first five days of its debut streaming service.
“There are few people with a career like Halle Berry,” said Scott Stuber, head of Netflix World Cinema. “She is an award-winning actress, producer and as the audience saw last week, she is an incredible director. “We are excited to be in her corner as she gives power in front of and behind the camera on Bruised and we look forward to telling more stories together.”
Barry, who won the 2002 Academy Award for Best Actor for “Monster’s Ball,” will star in the upcoming “Our Man From Jersey” and will also star as executive producer on “The Mothership.” Both films will be released on Netflix, but are not part of Berry’s new deal with streaming service.
