It’s been a great week for Eddie Murphy, from he and girlfriend Paige Butcher confirming 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.
