Brian Robbins and Eddie Murphy are reteaming on the sci-fi comedy, Starship Dave for 20th Century Fox and Guy Walks Into a Bar productions.

The film is the story of a crew of miniature, human-looking aliens who are seeking a way to save their doomed world. Murphy will play the human spacecraft they travel in as well as the ship's captain.

The two recently worked on the laugher, Norbit; that relationship won Robbins the part. Variety notes Pete Segal was previously attached to direct Starship Dave but has a scheduling conflict thanks to Get Smart for Warner Bros.
