Murphy in Pluto Nash Will it be as good as Pluto Nash?
It seems that Eddie Murphy is willing to take a break from 'kiddie' films and rejoin the adults. Sure, Eddie Murphy hasn't made a good film in God knows how long, but maybe it is time for a change [or maybe he should stick with kiddie films]. Eddie Murphy's next role-- how about a rapper turned private eye.

Murphy is Johnny Blaze

When I first heard this news of Johnny Blaze, I assumed that Eddie Murphy some how replaced Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze in Ghost Rider. Well I can assume that 'Blaze' has something to do with smoking marijuana, the writers may want to change this title quickly to avoid any confusion. Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg [Harold and Kumar go to White Castle] are writing a script for an action-comedy about Johnny Blaze; an old-school rapper who becomes a private eye.

Eddie Murphy came up with the concept of the film and immediately found a few avenues to pitch it through. As long as Eddie can get his brother, Charlie Murphy, a role, this film could be promising. For those of you who are bummed about Eddie sliding away from 'kiddie' films, don't worry; you will hear Eddie again in Shrek 3.

Stay tuned for updates.
