Eddie Murphy has been making the news recently not for his latest film, Tower Heist, which failed to live up to box-office expectations last weekend, but for his departure as Oscar host after his Tower Heist director, Brett Ratner, resigned following a swirl of PR gaffs.
Now, you have a whole new reason to talk about Murphy, but judging by comments I’ve been reading all morning this new trailer for Murphy’s A Thousand Words, which was ironically dated on for March 23, 2012 to take advantage of his Oscar hosting duties, it doesn’t appear as if it will be one of his most shining moments.
The synopsis goes like this:
The film co-stars Allison Janney, Clark Duke, Cliff Curtis, Jack McBrayer and Kerry Washington and is directed by Murphy’s Meet Dave and Norbit helmer, Brian Robbins. Check out the trailer below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
