Eddie Murphy is sticking to comedy. Though Dreamgirls brought him back into the spotlight, the actor has Norbit coming this February, Starship Dave in production, and another possible project lined up with Paramount Pictures.

Eddie Murphy for NowhereLand

It hasn't been settled just yet, but Eddie Murphy is currently in talks with Paramount to star in NowhereLand.

Scripted by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, NowhereLand features Murphy as a successful financial exec who suddenly loses his confidence and finds his career going down the drain. He discovers the answers to his problems within the imaginary world created by his daughter.

Solomon and Matheson's last writing collaboration was on Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. Yes, they were responsible for the original as well.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce with Solomon.

"We liked the idea of Eddie playing a role he hasn't played before," said di Bonaventura. "He showed a bit of that vulnerability in Dreamgirls, but this gives him the opportunity to tap into that reservoir of talent."

NowhereLand gives Paramount a chance to keep Murphy close after projects such as Dreamgirls, Norbit and Shrek the Third.

Stay tuned for updates.
