According to sources, the still-untitled film will mark Barris’ feature directorial debut and is co-written by him and Hill. The plot remains under wraps, but reports state that it will be “an incisive examination of modern love and family dynamics and how clashing cultures, societal expectations and generational differences shape and affect relationships,” and that “Murphy and Hill will find themselves on opposite sides of some of those divides.”
The comedy will be produced by Barris via his Khalabo Ink Society banner, Hill through Strong Baby and Kevin Misher through Misher Films. Also executive producing are Mychelle Deschamp, Hale Rothstein, Matt Dines, Ali Goodwin, Andy Berman, David Hyman and Charisse Hewitt Webster.
Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming film.
