Get ready for yet another remake. It seems that Eddie Murphy is set to star in a remake of the Walther Matthau and Jack Lemmon 1993 comedy Grumpy Old Men.
The premise of the new film would be exactly the same as the original with two feuding neighbors escalating their war when a new female neighbor moved in on the street.
There’s no indication who will play the other neighbor, but The Hollywood Reporter indicates that Samuel L. Jackson is being approached. Tim Story is on board to direct.
Honestly, I was dead set against this until Jackson was mentioned. I’m still not thrilled, but if Jackson was to come on board I would at least want to check it out.
But this is what we’re down to remaking now? Good grief.
