If Ya Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em?
HSK Exclusive – HSK’s previous expose surrounding Eddie Murphy may have uncovered the comedian’s seemingly insecure-based jealousy surrounding Denzel Washington and Will Smith — but it now seems the legendary funny man is looking to now put those feelings aside. That’s because sources reveal Murphy is plotting to join forces with those very men over the remake of Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier’s “Uptown Saturday Night“.
You may remember a former close associate to Murphy revealed the comedian often boasts about “making more money than Denzel”. As for Will…well, we’re told at the starting point of the Fresh Prince’s career Murphy told the actor “you’ll never be as big as me” — a comment Will is said to have taking as nothing more than motivation.
Now, it looks like Eddie’s attempting to throw Denzel and Will an olive branch.
Here’s the drop:
“Eddie wants to make a movie with Will Smith and Denzel Washington. Uptown Saturday Night” is in development, and Eddie wants in.”
