We just discovered from our sources that word on the Paramount Studios lot is that actor/comedian Eddie Murphy is planning on partnering with the studio to set up his own production company and produce several films a year, with a deal for three years. What makes this significant is the Murphy once had a similar deal years ago, but now is negotiating with the studio to PRODUCE the films, where as his deal before included him starring in the films.
We also hear that the deal will be almost similar to Tyler Perry's deal with Lionsgate where Perry owns his films. No word yet on the terms of the deal, but our sources say that Murphy will be paid three million a year, plus ownership and rights to all of the films produced under the yet-to-be titled production banner.
