Murphy enters Nowhereland
Nowhereland is to be written by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, who wrote Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, reports Variety.
And Murphy, who secured an Oscar nod for his performance in upcoming musical drama Dreamgirls, looks to return to comedic territory once again this summer when he provides the voice for the loveable Donkey in Shrek The Third.
However, the actor has not been seen on screen for a while, appearing in The Haunted Mansion and Daddy Day Care in 2003 before Shrek 2 and new film Norbit.
Fans of his early work can revisit classics such as Beverly Hills Cop, 48 Hrs, Trading Places or Coming to America if they want to see a young Murphy on fine form.
