Third 'Nutty Professor' Could Be on the Way


Universal and Imagine Entertainment have been considering to develop another sequel to Eddie Murphy's comedy series, 'The Nutty Professor'.

Rumor has it, another sequel to "The Nutty Professor", the remake of Jerry Lewis-starring 1963 film, is brewing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal and Imagine Entertainment are in the early stages of developing what could be "Nutty Professor 3" movie as the studio and production company put out an open call to writers for their take on the potential third installment.

Though both Universal and Imagine Entertainment seem to be moving on with the project, THR notes that the franchise star Eddie Murphy has yet to be attached to the proposed project. The publication further mentioned that Murphy's involvement would be depended on a number of elements, including the writer and director.

Telling the story of severely obese university professor Sherman Klump who invents a miracle weight loss potion, the first "Nutty Professor" starring Eddie Murphy was released in 1996 and collected $273.9 million worldwide. In 2000, the remake movie is followed by its sequel "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps". Putting on Janet Jackson as Murphy's love interest, the follow-up film pulled in less than the first with $166.3 million worldwide.
