two broken ribs in her filmmaking debut

Get hit over and over again. And not only in the cage or mixed wrestling ring of Wound. Halle berry is Jackie Justice in the fiction of the film that this Wednesday the 24th premieres by Netflix, and in which, at the same time, she makes her debut as a director.

Everything happens to Jackie. Former wrestler – she retired after an “embarrassing” defeat – when she thinks she can raise her head, she discovers that she must take care of her 6-year-old son, whom she hadn’t seen for a long time, because the father had just been shot in the head. Abused by her manager and partner – Berry has, in her personal life, more than a history of violent boyfriends and partners – she decides the path of redemption: she will fight for the title, she will recover the love of her son and she will believe she finds love in other woman.

Maybe a lot to tell in her first film, but here we are, sitting in front of the Zoom screen to talk to the first black woman to win the Oscar for best leading actress.

-And in this movie, your main opponent, in the fiction of “Herida”, is an Argentine fighter. Was that in the original script?

-Yes. And in reality she is not an Argentine fighter (Editors’ note: it’s Valentina Shevchenko, current UFC flyweight champion), but she plays one in the movie.

-And are you a big fan of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and do you go to events, live fights, with some assiduity?

-Did you have any injuries while filming, any injuries?

-Yes. I had two broken ribs. Oh yeah, it’s part of the thing, you know, when actors do their own “stunts,” that’s what happens. It’s part of the way …

The truth is that Cat Zingan, a former UFC fighter, sued Halle Berry because she claims she had promised her a leading role in Wound. It seems that Jackie’s life in fiction and Zingan’s life have similarities, hence the offering. The fighter alleges that she turned down an offer for a UFC fight in order to star in the film, and that she was ultimately eliminated from the project and from the UFC.

-Well, tell us why you took the roles of director and lead actress (Nick Cassavetes was going to direct it, and it was starred by Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds’ wife).

-Yes. I can’t say that’s what I intended to do when I signed (the contract), to make this movie, when I realized that I wanted to play the character. Sometimes your destiny finds you, and I think that’s exactly what happened here. I realized that I couldn’t find a director who thought, who saw it the way I saw it, because the script wasn’t really in script form, it was just kind of a figment of my imagination, the way I had to do it, reimagine that world. So at the end of the day, it sounded crazy, but I realized that maybe I should be the one to do it.

&Quot;Sometimes Your Destiny Finds You And That

-When did you feel, internally, that you wanted to start your career as a film director?

-I think that at some point in this process, of getting the script and trying to find a filmmaker, rewriting the story, training, at some point along the way it was when I realized, I think I need to tell the story. I have worked in the industry for 30 years, I have worked with some of the best directors. I have been learning and learning and I have been a film student, a lover of cinema in the cinema. So I thought it was a good time for me to start. It is a subject that I love, and the world in which it was created is a world that I know very intimately.

-And did you have any kind of inspiration in movies like “Million Dollar Baby” or perhaps in one of the “Rocky” movies?

-And will you miss seeing the movie at the cinema? Because “Herida” had its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year.

-Yes, it will be released in theaters for a little while, so that people can see it in the movies. It will live on Netflix, you know, for the entire life of the movie, but people will have the opportunity to see it, whoever still wants to do it in the cinema, and who misses the cinema. That is good.

-It’s your first film as a director. Was it difficult for you to edit, cut your work as an actress?

-If you want to know the truth, be a director and be the star at the same time and have a role as big as that and be my first film, it was all difficult, but I had wonderful editors who helped me navigate through the process. And he was constantly learning and constantly growing. So no, I won’t say it was more difficult than any other part of making the movie.
