Eddie Murphy as Daddy
Before Eddie Murphy films his role in Disney's THE HAUNTED MANSION this November, he'll sneak in another film, DADDY DAY CARE, this summer. DADDY is described as a "broad family comedy" that will reteam Murphy with his DR. DOLITTLE 2 collaborators, producer John Davis and director Steve Carr. The film follows an out-of-work Dad who decides to open up a day care facility in his home. Fox was originally set to make the film but Murphy wanted to push the start date ahead of MANSION a move at which Fox balked. Revolution Studios has since picked up the project in turnaround. You can next see Murphy in the sci-fi/comedy THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH this August.
