According to Hollywood Reporter, the celebrated comic star Eddie Murphy might have landed a major movie feature as he is currently in talks with New Line to star in its remake of 1993 hit comedy movie Grumpy Old Men.

The iconic comic actor will reportedly star alongside Samuel L. Jackson in the new project directed by Fantastic Four director Tim Story and produced by John Davis.

Murphy would play one of the feuding seniors made famous by Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau in the 1993 comedy about a lifelong battle between two neighbors that only gets worse when a new female neighbor (played by Ann-Margret) moves across the street.

Grumpy Old Men spawned a 1995 sequel, Grumpier Old Men, which earned $72 million domestically, a nearly identical haul as the original version.
