*Eddie Muphy says he’s been busy developing ideas for a potential third installment of “The Nutty Professor.”
“You know what, there might be another ‘Nutty Professor,’” he told Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson at the LA premiere of “Shrek Forever After” on Sunday. “We kind of wrote something that might be kind of funny.”
There’s no word whether Universal has any desire to shoot another film in the lucrative franchise, but according to Murphy, it will depend on what the studio thinks of his ideas.
“If the studios want to do it, we’ll do it,” he told Robinson, his rumored ex-girlfriend. “If you don’t see it, the studio was like, ‘This isn’t funny.’”
“The Nutty Professor” grossed $273 million worldwide in 1996, and its sequel “Nutty Professor II: The Klumps” grossed $161 million four years later.
