Halle Berry Joins ‘Boomerang’ Reboot

Published: Monday 24th Sep 2018 by David

Halle Berry has teamed up with Lena Waithe to reboot ‘Boomerang’ for BET!

Good news below…

Berry starred in the original movie and is now working with Waithe to produce its TV revival!

She shares…

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 trail blazer in her own right. I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.

Waithe was keen to remind fans not to expect an obvious reboot…

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!

BET’s Scott Mills had this to say….

Partnering an icon such as Halle with a disruptor like Lena is a perfect blend for the creation of a project that tells a classic tale in a relevant voice. This partnership demonstrates BET’s commitment to the continued elevation of the brand, collective creativity and authentic storytelling.

A due date is yet to be announced.

Unfamiliar with the colourful original?

Eddie Murphy, Eartha Kitt, Grace Jones, Robin Givens, David Alan Grier, Geoffrey Holder and Martin Lawrence starred in the box-office rocking release.

    That’s great but what about Eddie? You can’t have a Boomerang reboot without him IMO.
