Nutty Professor 3?

Nov. 18, 2008by: Mike Sampson

In a world where Brett Ratner is prepared to bring me a BEVERLY HILLS COP 4, I don't know that I'm ready for another bad Eddie Murphy sequel. But that looks exactly like what we might get as Universal looks to move forward on a third NUTTY PROFESSOR movie. The studio in currently developing the film and has put out an open call to writers to pitch them a concept for a third film. They were quick to caution that Murphy himself is not attached at all in this early stage and would only come aboard dependent on the writer, director, script, etc. Truthfully, the smart thing to do would be to not come aboard no matter what. The first NUTTY PROFESSOR was genius (the first Eddie Murphy one, not the first Jerry Lewis one) but the second was just an obvious attempt to cash in. And if NORBIT taught us anything, it's that Eddie Murphy in a fat suit isn't always funny. And how far can we take the Professor Klump character? In the second one he was trying to find the secret to eternal youth. What could he possibly be searching for in a sequel?...

Extra Tidbit: Hard to believe that Murphy's NUTTY PROFESSOR came out 12 years ago.

shit...

Along with shit-faced Ratner prepping to fuck up BEV HILLS COP 4, this news now makes me want to take my "Fan of Eddie Murphy-self" into a dark room, with a 5th of Jack Daniels, a .45 caliber and one single bullet, play some Patsy Cline, pull the trigger and put the old Murphy spirit out to pasture.

I will lay good money on the idea that BEV HILLS COP 4 will be interchangeable with the fucking RUSH HOUR movies.

I do not foresee BHC 4 being too distant of a relative of Ratner's other

I do not foresee BHC 4 being too distant of a relative of Ratner's other extremely mediocre cop movie shit.

I foresee a script that could have been a RUSH HOUR film, with Jackie Chan's character simply erased, or replaced, and Eddie's AXEL FOLEY becoming a slightly amped up version of Chris Tucker's CARTER character.

Bret Ratner- The worst man for any directing job. Instead of making movies better with his "vision," he shits them all up. Worst "big" (and i use the term big loosely) director in the business right now.

Ratner must think he's some kind of movie king with all these flix he's attached to, but what he fails to realize is that he's the king of the land of retards.

I fail to see how his career is in the shitter considering MOST of his movies still make money, and that's including Norbit. Norbit made 30 million (box office not counting dvd sales) over its estimated budget. Sure he made Pluto Nash/Meet Dave...but the man has been doing nearly all family films for the last 12 years or so and most of those movies actually turn a profit. To say his career is in the shitter is a bit unfair whether you like what he is making or not.

I'm hoping, I'm hoping, I'm hoping that BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 is the much-needed big reboot to Eddie Murphy's career.

Idea

How about casting Steven Seagal as the Nutty Professor. He doesn't need a fat suit since he already is a fat bastard no talent douche?

typical

just like all the other actors who fuck up their careers with bad choices, Murphy has decided to brush off the awful Meet Dave with something that already has a fan base.

Tom Cruise was trying to do it with M:I:IV
Steven Seagal tried to do a while back with that proposed Under Siege 3

Get over it, your career is in the shitter, and nobody cares about you anymore.

And I thought Beverly Hills Cop 4 was a bad idea but this one takes the cake. Come on! The Nutty Professor 2 was crap, honestly. I really like the 1st one but the 2nd one is intolerable. If they want to make Nutty Professor 3, take a look at Norbit and how that turned out.

Beverly Hills Cop 4, Nutty Professor 3, Shrek 4, is this really the best Murphy can do? Given Norbit and Meet Dave, I'm guessing Murphy is a breath away from becoming a direct-to-DVD actor.
