Abdul Mateen Ii Berry Set Netflix Deals
Warner Bros. Pictures

“Aquaman,” “Watchmen” and “Candyman” star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s new production company House Eleven10 has signed a creative partnership deal with Netflix.

The deal will see him star in and produce movies for Netflix with the company aiming to showcase the talent of traditionally underrepresented or overlooked communities within the industry including diverse filmmakers, writers, and staff.

No specific projects have been announced as part of this new agreement. The actor will be seen later this month in “The Matrix Resurrections” and early next year in Michael Bay’s heist thriller “Ambulance”.

Meanwhile, hot on the heels of the streaming release of her directorial debut “Bruised,” Halle Berry has signed a multi-title deal with Netflix to produce and star in feature films for them.

“Bruised” was Netflix’s top film in the United States this week and the No. 2 English language film around the globe. Berry stars in the film as an MMA fighter who reclaims her power in both the ring and in her life.
