Eddie Murphy, Hip-Hop Detective

Ummm... I still think Eddie's got some good movies left in him, but I'm not sure I trust him to represent hip-hop. "Boogie In Your Butt" notwithstanding.

Eddie Murphy is Johnny Blaze

DreamWorks and Imagine have set Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle screenwriters Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to write Johnny Blaze, an action comedy that will be developed as a star vehicle for Eddie Murphy. Variety says Imagine's Brian Grazer will produce.

Murphy would play the title character, an old-school rapper who retires and becomes a private eye who solves crimes within the hip-hop world.

Grazer produced Murphy starring vehicles The Nutty Professor and its sequel as well as Bowfinger, and the two worked together as producers on TV series The PJs and the in-development film The Incredible Shrinking Man.

The PJs was hella slept-on, I'll say that much. Is that on DVD yet?
