It is time for a fresh round of grumpy.
Eddie Murphy is speculated to feature I the remake of Grumpy Old Men that is going to be directed by Tim Story (director of the Ride Along films), for New Line, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Murphy will play the role of one of the fighting old men which was a part of the famous 1993 comedy film featuring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. The movie was about a long-term battle between two neighbours which became even more fierce when a new female neighbour (Ann-Margret) came to live in their neighbourhood.
Grumpy Old Men also had a sequel, Grumpier Old Men, that released in 1995 and earned $72 million domestically, which was almost the same as the earnings of the original movie.
Warner Bors. Has been keen to remake some of the old films by giving them an all-female touch, considering this summer’s successful Ocean’s 8 that earned $263 million, and a reboot of a classic comedy starred by a black actor would be quite in line with the revolutionary approach. It is also speculated that the movie might get a new title.
The producer of the earlier Grumpy Old Men films, John Davis is going to produce the reboot as well.
