I’m told Fox is really pissed that Eddie Murphy didn’t show up for his own Meet Dave premiere last night. People around Eddie told the studio that he ran late shooting a film for DreamWorks’ A Thousand Words — whereas Brian Robbins, the director of both movies, did make the premiere, too. (There are pictures to prove it!) But here’s what galls: I’ve learned that the only reason Fox did the premiere at all was because Murphy insisted on one! So sources from Eddie’s camp say that’s “ridiculous”. Oops, I don’t think this marriage (dating back to Dr. Dolittle 1 and 2) can be saved.
Will Fox Work With Eddie Murphy Again?
