PASADENA, Calif | Halle Berry’s ‘Boomerang’ updates story for new generation
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Halle Berry and Lena Waithe say they’ve updated the 1992 movie “Boomerang” for a new generation.
Berry said the original story that focused on black characters’ lives and work was innovative for its time.
But Berry said the issues that millennials face today are different and required a “fresher” approach for the BET comedy series premiering 10 p.m. EST Tuesday.
Waithe said she understands the affection people have for the film that, besides Berry, starred Eddie Murphy, Robin Givens, David Alan Grier, Martin Lawrence and Grace Jones.
