It’s been a great week for Eddie Murphy, from he and girlfriend Paige Butcherconfirming the news of their second child, the actor’s 10th, to starring in the remake of the 1993 comedy Grumpy Old Men, the 57-year-old is getting back to work! In the original film, two lifelong neighbors who’ve been feuding since childhood find their dislike for one another exacerbated by the presence of a new neighbor who leaves each of them smitten. Rumor has it Samuel L. Jackson is reportedly up for the role opposite Murphy.
This marks the second project Murphy has been attached to this year. He will star in the Rudy Ray Moore biopic of Dolemite Is My Name, alongsideChris Rock, Ron Cephas Jones, Tituss Burgess, Craig Robinson, Wesley Snipes and Mike Epps.
We’re just glad to see Eddie back on the big screen!
