“You know, people look at ‘Boomerang,’ which we did together 30 years ago, and go, ‘Wow, this is [Murphy’s] first real romantic comedy, where he’s really playing a romantic leading man,’” Hudlin told TheWrap. “And that’s a movie that people are still talking about today. So, happy to do another first with him, and hopefully, we’ll have the same longevity as that film did.”
