While Eddie Murphy didn’t appear in that many movies during the 2010s, he’s been a more regular presence in our lives since 2019, with his latest cinematic offerings including "Dolemite is My Name" and "You People," both of which can be watched with a Netflix subscription, and "Coming 2 America" over at Amazon Prime Video. The next Murphy flick on the horizon is "Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley," which naturally sees him reprising the title role. While we continue waiting to learn when that movie will be released, it’s been reported that the "SNL" alum is gearing up to join another beloved comedy franchise.

Word came in today that Murphy is in talks to star as Inspector Clouseau in a new "Pink Panther" reboot. "Sonic the Hedgehog’s" Jeff Flower will direct this new take on the franchise that originally starred Peter Sellers, and Chris Bremner is writing the script. This version of "Pink Panther," which was first revealed back in late 2020, will reportedly be a live-action/CGI hybrid (which was also the plan for an earlier reboot attempt from 2014) that follows the actual Pink Panther being broken out of an animated prison by his live-action crew for a heist. We can probably safely assume the score will be the Pink Panther diamond, right?
