Eddie Murphy is reportedly attached to star in Columbia Pictures' adaptation of popular classic TV series "Fantasy Island."


Appears to enjoy being extremely busy in his profession as an actor, Eddie Murphy is reportedly attached to topline a family-oriented comedy entitled "Fantasy Island" for Columbia Pictures.

Based on the popular TV series starring Ricardo Montalban that ran throughout 1978-1984, the flick is said to see the funnyman play multiple roles with Jay Scherick and David Ronn penning the script. Ronn and Murphy recently worked together in "Norbit" which so far has pulled around $95 million in domestic market.

Name to direct still remains a question, but it is learned that John Davis, Marc Toberoff, Leonard Goldberg, and Lucas Foster will all serve as producers while Sony's Doug Belgrad and Andrea Giannetti are shepherding the project for the studio.
