Murphy in talks to star in ‘Pink Panther’ Movie

American actor, comedian, and singer Eddie Murphy is in negotiations to star in ‘Pink Panther’, the MGM comedy movie based on the classic property.

He is likely to star as ‘Inspector Clouseau.’

Sonic the Hedgehog filmmaker Jeff Fowler is directing from a script by Chris Bremner, with Rideback’s Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich (Aladdin) producing via their Rideback banner.

Larry Mirisch and Julie Andrews are also producing.

The Pink Panther films told the adventures of bumbling Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers), with the first film involving a jewel called the Pink Panther.

A cartoon panther appeared in the opening credits, and became popular in his own right, starring in cartoons over the decades.

The new feature project would be a live-action/CG hybrid and would combine both traditions. The story is said to see the Pink Panther’s live-action crew break him out of his animated prison to do a heist job. The project is in the deep development stages.

Murphy rose to become one of the top comedy stars in the world with hits like Beverly Hills Cop and Coming to America in the 1980s, The Nutty Professor and Doctor Dolittle films in the 1990s and the Shrek films in the 2000s.

He most recently starred in Netflix’s You People and Amazon’s Coming 2 America.

Murphy is repped by WME and Ziffren Brittenham.
