Eddie Murphy is staying book and busy!

On the heels of his Rudy Ray Moore project at Netflix, “Dolemite Is My Name,” the iconic actor and comedian is set to star in Tim Story‘s remake of Grumpy Old Men.

Via THR:

Murphy would play one of the feuding seniors made famous by Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in the 1993 comedy about a lifelong battle between two neighbors that only gets worse when a new female neighbor (played by Ann-Margret) moves across the street.

I’m excited about this project because Tim Story has consistently given us great content including Barbershop, Think Like A Man, Ride Along 2 and more.

I will keep you updated on this project as more info becomes available.
