Eddie Murphy is in talks to star in NowhereLand, a Paramount Pictures comedy, reports Variety. Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce with Solomon.
The trade says the studio 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 executive 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 & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
