Access Hollywood spoke to Eddie Murphy at the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Shrek Forever After’ where he referred to the possibility of a third Nutty Professor film being in the works.
The actor said that they have some funny ideas for a third movie and it will be up to what the studio thinks of them to determine whether a third movie goes ahead. The first two Nutty Professor films are generally considered a financial success so it stands to reason that the studio may have an interest in a third film.
Personally I look at many of Eddie Murphy’s recent comedies and can’t help but think such a venture is not going to end well, despite being financially well received the Nutty Professor 2 was not a good movie. Looking at other efforts such as Pluto Nash, Holy Man, Meet Dave, and Norbit it doesn’t leave me with much confidence in delivering more films along these lines.
What do you think? Is a third Nutty Professor movie something you’d really want to see? Let us know in the comments section below.
