Following the success of Coming 2 America, Eddie Murphy has just inked a three-picture, first-look film deal with Amazon Studios.
The deal will see Murphy star in three future Amazon Studios films and develop other products with Prime with the opportunity to star in them. Coming 2 America was the No. 1 streaming movie in the week of its release, and had the biggest opening weekend of any streaming movie in the past 12 months.
In the press release, Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, shared how excited they are to work with Murphy and welcomed him into the Amazon family.
“Eddie is a legend both in front of and behind the camera,” Salke said. “With undeniable comedic and dramatic genius, he consistently delivers entertaining, original stories and characters to audiences around the world. We could not be more excited to help carry on the tradition and to officially welcome Eddie into the Amazon family.”
Next up for Murphy is a starring role in an untitled Kenya Barris-directed Netflix comedy alongside Jonah Hill. Barris shared his excitement about the project on Instagram.
“Sooo pumped to be doing this crazy project with my boy @Jonahhill and @Netflix!” the director wrote. “Can’t wait to show y’all the hilarity we have cooked up!!! Jonah is truly one of the most overall talented people on the planet and I’m psyched to be on this awesome team!!!”
Murphy is also set to star in Netflix’s upcoming film, Beverly Hills Cop 4.
