At least it is, of course, that her "Purple" co-stars Issa Rae and Regina Hall were made for CNN when asked why there were no more films like theirs, with starring young actors.
"Because she's lazy," Hall teased Martin. "A movie and you're already 14."
"" Oh, I just started a production company right now, "Rae said, and seems to be Martin.

The young actress said she went to the "Little" meeting dressed in a blazer to embody his character in the film Jordan Sanders, the temperamental business man winds that wake up in the morning and which have been withdrawn into childhood.
Hall portrays Jordan as an adult. The couple said they worked closely to create continuity for their character.
"We talked a little before we actually started shooting and then we grew a bit with Jordan," Martin said. "Regina was running every day, she saw my scenes and I wanted to see her in order to actually feel what Jordan would be."

"People should compare, but we really tried to do our own thing," she said.
"Little" director Tina Gordon said body-swapping films are such a popular genre that she focused more on character development than the fact that it is a reboot.

"I think the world itself is changing, and now you want to see movies that are more varied and inclusive," Packer said before adding: "Remember that we are starting from such a deficit that Now that there's more, that doesn't mean we're anywhere near where we need to be. "
Martin's purpose is to do his part to get the industry there.
She has already made history with "Little" as the youngest person to ever executive produces a great Hollywood movie.
The teenager will be in "StepMonster", a comedy about a young girl trying to navigate life with her grandfather.
Rae and Hall shot that they also threw that movie and plagued their young co-star on a possible "little" sequel, with Rae complaining, "Marsai, work harder!"
Then there will be a "small" successor?
"We have to figure out how this & # 39; Little & # 39; first do before there is a" small "successor," Martin laughed. "That's the answer." 19659028]
