Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Actor Blake Lively (above) is go­ing to be an MMA fighter. The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter re­veals that the 29-year-old has joined Bruised, a mixed mar­tial arts ac­tion drama, di­rected by The Note­book’s Nick Cas­savetes.

The script was cir­cu­lat­ing among for­eign buyers over the week­end. The story fo­cusses on a sin­gle mother work­ing two jobs and a former MMA fighter who must re­turn to the cage to keep her son. Sierra/ Affin­ity, a com­pany that of­fers film sales ser­vices, will in­tro­duce the project to buyers at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val.

The pro­duc­tion is ex­pected to be­gin in Septem­ber.

Lively was last seen in The Shal­lows (2016), which earned $119 mil­lion (`762 crore) glob­ally. She had said in an in­ter­view ear­lier that for her role in The Shal­lows, a sur­vival movie, she had to work out 13 hours a day.
