Blake Lively to Star in MMA Action-Drama ‘BRUISED’

May 15, 2017


Blake Lively is set to star in BRUISED, a mixed martial arts action-drama directed by Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, My Sister’s Keeper).

Nick Meyer’s Sierra/Affinity is launching sales on the project at Cannes this week.

Lively will play Jackie, a single mother working two jobs and a disgraced MMA fighter who has been up against the ropes her entire life. When the authorities threaten to take her young son away from her, she must get back in the cage for one last chance to fight for redemption and give her son the life she always wanted.

Michelle Rosenfarb writes the script. Thunder Road Pictures’ Basil Iwanyk produce with Linda Gottlieb and Guymon Casady of Management 360.

Production is being eyed for September.
