Eddie Murphy Signs Deal with Amazon Studios

Eddie Murphy has signed a three-picture first-look film deal with Amazon Studios. 

"Eddie is a legend both in front of and behind the camera," Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. "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."

Murphy's Amazon release of "Coming 2 America" had the number one opening weekend over any other film in 2021 to date. 

The new deal will include three films that Murphy will star in, as well as Murphy being involved in the development of other original programming.

Netflix's "Beverly Hills Cop 4" will be the next film we see Murphy in, starring alongside Jonah Hill.
