Beverly Hills Cop star Eddie Murphy and Jonah Hill are gearing up to star in a new comedy film made for Netflix.
Eddie Murphy is reuniting with Coming 2 America writer Kenya Barris for the forthcoming untitled comedy film and Hill has also reportedly co-written the script.
According to Consequence, the feature is described as:
“…an incisive examination of modern love and family dynamics and how clashing cultures, societal expectations, and generational differences shape and affect relationships”.
“Murphy and Hill will find themselves on opposite sides of some of those divides.”
Murphy made a return to the screen with 2019’s Dolemite Is My Name, also appearing in an Emmy-winning reprise on Saturday Night Live in 2019 after 35 years.
The comedian revealed earlier this year that he took a hiatus after winning the Razzies ‘Worst Actor of the Decade’ award in 2010. Murphy told Marc Maron on the WTF podcast:
“I was making shitty movies. I was like, ‘This shit ain’t fun. They’re giving me Razzie… motherfuckers gave me the ‘worst actor ever’ Razzie,”
“[So I thought], ‘Maybe it’s time to take a break.’”
Murphy was, however, nominated in the 2020 Golden Globes awards in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy or Musical category for his portrayal of filmmaker Rudy Ray Moore in Dolemite Is My Name.
Jonah Hill’s new movie Don’t Look Up is due out on December 24th which co-stars Friends alum, Matthew Perry.
The film is under the heading of dark comedy, but the film’s message deals with two low-level astronomers, who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet earth.
We’ll bring you more on the Murphy/Hill collaboration when we find out.
