30 Aug – It was revealed that Eddie Murphy is set to star in a new Netflix comedy opposite "21 Jump Street" actor, Jonah Hill.

According to THR, the two will play an unlikely duo in an untitled project that will be directed by "Back-ish" creator Kenya Barris, written by Barris and Hill.


It is noted that Murphy previously worked with Barris in the Amazon movie, "Coming 2 America", the sequel to the comedian's 1988 film.

Although not much has been released about the upcoming project, it is said that the comedy film will be "an incisive examination of modern love and family dynamics and how clashing cultures, societal expectations and generational differences shape and affect relationships, with Murphy and Hill finding themselves on opposite sides of some of those divides."
