According to The Hollywood Reporter, it looks like Universal and Imagine will be recycling the tired but profitable "Nutty Professor" franchise again.
The franchise grossed more than $400 million worldwide with Eddie Murphy as the gargantuan Prof. Sherman Klump in "The Nutty Professor" and it's sequal the "Klumps." Murphy, who has been basically laying low since his botched marraige to Tracey Edmonds, hasn't agreed to appear in the third installment yet. His involvement is reportedly contingent upon the writer. An open call has gone out to find the perfect scribe for the project.
WTF has said it once and will say it again. If Murphy, who has spent his off time hosting billards parties with his long-term housemate Johnny Gill, is serious about reviving his career, he needs to look for more adult fare. His best work has always been in action comedies or romantic comedies.
