Eddie Murphy teams with The Revenant producer for new Netflix movie
Hopefully this will be better than Adam Sandler’s Netflix output… After what feels like forever, comedic actor Eddie Murphy will be making his way back onto our screens and into our hearts, as it has been announced he’s set to star in a new movie for Netflix.
Memorably titled Soul Soul Soul: The Murray Murray Story, the project is said to be a mockumentary about a fictional ’60s soul singer named Murray Murray, who puts his old band back together and tries to take down hip-hop when a hot artist samples his hit song from 1962.
The Revenant producer Brett Ratner, who previously worked with Murphy on Tower Heist, is taking on directing responsibilities, while Reba writer Chris Case is in charge of the script.
With a whole string of terrible movies joining his filmography over the past decade (may we remind you of Norbit and Meet Dave…), Murphy has a lot of making up to do. Here’s hoping Soul Soul Soul: The Murray Murray Story will be the improvement we’ve been waiting for.
