Eddie Murphy is in talks to star in NowhereLand, a Paramount Pictures comedy scripted by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, according to Variety. Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce with Solomon.

Paramount has greenlit the film for a summer start and will secure a director within two weeks. The film is Murphy's next vehicle after he completes the Fox comedy Starship Dave.

Murphy will play a successful financial exec who suddenly loses his confidence and finds his career going down the drain. He discovers the answers to his problems within the imaginary world created by his daughter.

Solomon wrote the script with Matheson, his writing partner on Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.
