Halle Berry has had a strange career. At least for us who saw her career from childhood. Yes, she won Oscar, the first and only black woman to win Best Actress, for Monster’s Ball back in 2001, but she has not been a mainstay in Hollywood like Ryan Gosling, Amy Adams or even her X men co-star Hugh Jackman. Berry tends to be more of a wave, in and out of the public consciousness with every film she makes.
Now, however, the 54-year-old actress appears to be on the verge of yet another comeback. Halle Berry directs and stars in her next film, The wind. Netflix is ready to release the movie on its streaming platform in November 2021. Who knows? The film might be Berry’s next big hit. We could see her back on the red carpet or something if the film does well enough.
In an interview with Entertainment weekly, Halle Berry talked about her upcoming film, did her own stunt work and aging in Hollywood. Could The wind be the next big hit in Halle Berry’s wave-like career? What wisdom has the actor learned over the course of his career? Here’s everything you need to know.
What drew Halle Berry to The wind?
The wind, which is a movie about a disgraced MMA fighter who tried to be a better mother to his son, was originally a Blake Lively vehicle with a male instructor at the helm. Berry, however, said it held with her. When Lively left the project, Berry said, “So about six months later [Lively] decided in her own time that it was not for her I went to the producer, Basil Iwanyk, as I had just done John Wick 3 with, and gave him my pitch. And he said, ‘Great, we love that idea. Now find an instructor.
What about her idea? Berry said, “I could not get it out of my mind, so I thought, is it possible that this could be re-imagined for someone like me? Because I think I have a bid for what could actually work – which is about a middle-aged black woman, one who is fighting for one last chance rather than another chance ”. She added, “[W]when you are at a certain point in life, it becomes something more powerful and meaningful, right? ”
Berry tried to find a director, but when no one saw what she saw, she went back to Iwanyk and said she would direct the film. “I had to go back and say, ‘I’ve tried really hard, but what’s in my head, no one else is watching. This is going to sound really crazy because it’s crazy for me to think about it, but I think I should instruct this. ” He agreed, and it was like that The wind back her directorial debut.
About age and Hollywood
Halle Berry, as any fan can tell you, goes hard for her roles. On the set of John Wick 3, Berry broke two of her rubs. On the first day too The wind, she also broke two of her ribs. It is they, she feels to notice THAT ONE, different from the two ribs she had previously broken. It’s four ribs that were broken while we were filming this, Halle. We get a little worried.
Still, Berry enjoys where her career has taken her. She reflected, “It used to be when you were 40, your career was over, and I mean really done. Or you had to wait until you were old enough to play a grandmother, and then you could get another bite of the apple, right? I mean, I could not believe I would play an MMA fighter as a 54-year-old. But I did, so that must change. I am proof of that ”.
