Lena Waithe & Halle Berry Teaming Up On ‘Boomerang’ Reboot
Lena Waithe and Halle Berry are coming together to bring the Eddie Murphy classic, Boomerang, to the small screen.
The Emmy and Oscar winners have been tapped to executive produce a 10-episode, 30-minute series reboot for BET Networks and Paramount Television. The series, based on the 1992 film, is scheduled to premiere next year.
Halle Berry issued a statement about her new role as EP for the upcoming show.
I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trailblazer in her own right. I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.
Lena Waithe added:
This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story. There’s no point in trying to remake a classic. It can’t be done. So we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!
