Another Nutty Professor in the Works?


Universal and Imagine Entertainment are in the early stages of developing a new “Nutty Professor” movie, in what would be the third installment of the remake of the 1963 Jerry Lewis vehicle, says The Hollywood Reporter. An open call is out to writers for their take on a potential third entry.

Although it has been eight years since the last “Nutty” came out, executives are interested in a new version that would follow The Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps, starring Eddie Murphy.

Murphy is not attached to a new “Nutty”; his involvement would be contingent on the writer, director and other elements.
