The Incredible Shrinking Man: In a recent interview with Sci-Fi Wire, producer Brian Grazer talked about the upcoming remake of the sci-fi classic, The Incredible Shrinking Man, which has Eddie Murphy attached to headline:
"[They] had a genius idea as to what the occupation of the guy should be," Grazer said in an interview. "He's going to be a Las Vegas magician. It's so great, because what happens is he's that bigger-than-life [persona]. It's Eddie with an attitude. It's not happy Eddie. It's Eddie with his edgy attitude, being like David Copperfield or David Blaine. ... But he's somehow been relegated to do the day show, like babysitting kids. And he's pissed."
The film is slated for release in 2005.
