The deal will continue to see Berry both star in and produce films for Netflix, and also comes after her latest project with the company, Bruised, quickly debuted as the #1 film on the streamer for its weekly U.S. charts. The film has gone on to stay successful, charting at #2 on Netflix’s Top 10 Global English Film list.

According to Netflix, Bruised was the #1 film on the streaming platform in a total of 21 countries and was watched for 47.7 million hours in its first five days on the site.

“My directorial debut, Bruised, was a labor of love and I knew that Scott [Stuber] and Ted [Sarandos] would treat it with great care,” said Berry in a statement. “The Netflix team has not only been collaborative and creative, but extremely passionate and a delight to work with. I am beyond grateful for the partnership and look forward to telling more stories together.”

“There are few people with a career like Halle Berry. She’s an award-winning actress, producer and as audiences saw this past week, she’s an incredible director,” added Stuber, who serves as Head of Global Film at Netflix. “We’re thrilled to be in her corner as she delivers power in front of and behind the camera in Bruised and look forward to telling more stories together.”
