Ronny Cox has been tapped to star opposite Eddie Murphy in Nowhereland. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nicole Ari Parker and DeRay Davis have also jump aboard this imaginary comedy.

The plot revolves around a man who loses his job and finds solace in an imaginary world concocted by his six-year-old daughter. Cox is set to play the grumpy capital fund group boss who suspects Murphy's character of wrong doing, but decides to turn the other cheek as long as he gets results.

Parker will play Murphy's separated wife who doesn't understand his fascination with their daughter's imaginary world. Davis will be playing a therapist that calls himself the Man Whisperer.

Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson wrote the script, which Karey Kirkpatrick will be directing. The film is set to go into production before the end of the year.
