Coming off of her box office hit ‘The Shallows’, BLAKE LIVELY (Green Lantern) is about to take the action from the ocean to the MMA octagon in the upcoming action drama BRUISED.

Directed by NICK CASSAVETES (The Notebook), the film follows “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.”

Lets hope this project gives us the same mix of awesome MMA action and engaging drama ala 2011’s fantastic MMA film ‘Warrior’ starring Tom Hardy.

Expect more casting to be announced soon. Do not be surprise if some real MMA fighters gets featured in the film. Here’s hoping they call up Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6), who recently worked with Lively’s real life husband Ryan Reynolds in last year’s smash hit ‘Deadpool’.

Stay tuned for more info.
