Following the success of ‘Coming 2 America’, Eddie Murphy has signed on for his next comedy project with Amazon Prime called “Candy Cane Lane”. The holiday film is expected to begin filming in Los Angeles this winter.
Head of Amazon studios Jennifer Salke spoke of the new Eddie Murphy project; “As we know firsthand with our hit Coming 2 America, Eddie is someone who brings global audiences together, and we can’t wait to make it happen again. We look forward to seeing the multi-talented Reggie Hudlin take the helm in bringing this future holiday classic to life!”
Candy Cane Lane will be directed by Reginald Hudlin from a script written by Kelly Younger, which was inspired by Younger’s childhood holiday experiences. It will be produced by Murphy as part of his three-picture deal with Amazon Studios. This film will re-team Murphy with the crew behind his hit movie “Boomerang”.
