Shamier Anderson (Wynonna Earp) and Adan Canto (Designated Survivor) have been cast in Bruised, Halle Berry’s film directorial debut.
Written by Michelle Rosenfarb, the pic follows Jackie Justice (played by Berry), a washed-up MMA wrestler who has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting. When 6-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves.
Anderson will play the owner of the female mixed martial arts league that Jackie Justice participates in. Canto plays Berry’s MMA manager and boyfriend.
Anderson is perhaps best known for playing Agent Dolls the mysterious marshal in Syfy’s Wynonna Earp. Canto played Aaron Shore on Designated Survivor which went to Netflix after being cancelled on ABC.
