It's been a decade since we last saw the portly Sherman Klump and it seems he could be coming back for a third film. Access Hollywood spoke with Eddie Murphy on the red carpet of the Shrek Forever After premiere and he revealed that he is writing Nutty Professor III. Here's an excerpt from the article.
"You know what, there might be another Nutty Professor," Eddie Murphy told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson at the LA premiere of Shrek Forever After on Sunday, breaking the news of the possible sequel's latest development. "We kind of wrote something that might be kind of funny."
Whether or not the film hits theaters, he added, depends on just how funny it is.
"If the studios want to do it, we'll do it," he told Shaun. "If you don't see it, the studio was like, 'This isn't funny.'"
News of Nutty Professor IIIfirst broke back in November 2008. That story revealed that Murphy wasn't attached to the film and that it depended on the script. It seems now that he has written or will write the film himself.
We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further news regarding Nutty Professor III as soon as we have more information.
