Eddie Murphy could be headed back to one of his comfort zones, signing on to produce and possibly star in The Misadventures Of Fluffy for Paramount.
But wait! Though it sounds like a typical Murphy-flavoured family comedy, it's apparently an R-rated outing pitched by writers Sam Pitman and Adam Cole-Kelly which will chronicle a road trip through New York for talking critters.
And according to the Risky Business Blog, it's got a vein of Trading Places-style social satire running through it too.
So while he's ditching edgier fare like the Richard Pryor biopic, could this be his way of sneakily getting back to more interesting movies?
Only time will tell…
