HOLLYWOOD — “Way down in the jungle deep. The badass lion stepped on the signifying monkey’s feet…” Despite fathering a tribe of ten children, Eddie Murphy remains ridiculously spry in Hollywood. The 58-year-old humorist is in the process of filming a sequel to the 1988 African-based comedy “Coming to America” which comes on the heels of a 31-year hiatus. Eddie also has a new slapstick materializing on Netflix. “Dolemite Is My Name” premieres in September.

Directed by Craig Brewer, the aforementioned Blaxploitation remake chronicles the comedic ascension of Rudy Ray Moore (Eddie Murphy) who proved detractors wrong when his farcical, risqué, kung-fu fighting alter ego — Dolemite — became a cultural prodigy in the mid-70s.

In addition to Eddie, “Dolemite Is My Name” features a star-studded cast anchored by Chris Rock, Wesley Snipes, Snoop Dogg, Craig Robinson, Keegan-Michael Key, Mike Epps and several others.

Brewer’s conception, however, faces stiff demurral from Rusty Wesson — Rudy Ray Moore’s legal daughter. She’s suing Eddie and Netflix, claiming they’re gettin’ rich off the film while she’s struggling on welfare and food stamps. Rusty said she has health issues too. Does she deserve a cut?

Are you excited about the remake?

  11. James Runnels IV

    This almost makes me cry man. I know for a fact we would have seen the Mac man, Charlie Murphy, and probably even Isaac Hayes! Man this is gone take me back home! Thank you Eddie and cast for this!

  12. I hope she gets ’em for some cash!

  13. Pocket La'dray

    Just when i thought Eddie Murphy retired😂😂😂😂 Big ups for the abundance of color in this movie👑🔥👌🏽

  14. Mannn, got me ready to logon to Netflix right now……

  15. People really need to step back with an honest heart and realize this does not look good….this is a ,corny, star flooded ,old recycled Eddie styled character movie flop…and I’m a long time fan.

  16. The Original Dolomite is way funnier because he’s a pimp that knows Karate & raps it as he does things

  17. Latochia Jones

    Why wouldn’t she just have her Lawyer reach out to Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock for a sit down to discuss the options. Why do children of celebrity parents feel that they are entitled to their parents wealth? He’s the one that put in the time and the work!!

  18. This is genuinely exciting. Love rudy ray moore

  19. Apparently, those are the only choices in the sub-culture; get free money from someone else, or go on welfare. Here’s a radical idea…GO TO WORK.

  20. patrick edouard

    I can already tell…this is going to be terribly terrible.

  21. She doesn’t own rights to a movie because her father was in it. There were others in the movie too. Do they have control over the remake? Movies are redone to death. If every family member of every person in every original version was entitled to control the reboot there would be no reboots. She’s delusional and needs to get a job

  22. United Snakes Of Amerikkka

    Why she think she deserves any money what she bringing to the table?

  23. She’s lying. Mr. Moore did not have any children. It’s a documentary fact.

  24. This shit going to b funny af, great cast!

  25. Get a job instead of trying to cash in on your father’s name

  26. I’m surprised arsenio hall wasn’t on this.this movie would’ve been legendary.i would’ve added
    Samuel.L Jackson, Cedric the entertainer and Steve Harvey

  27. Holy SHIIITTTT!!!!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  28. Fuck Hollywood, trying to ruin Dolomites legacy.

  29. Officially the black Adam Sandler. Sad. He ruled the 80s. I wish I could unsee this.

  30. Eddie Murphy has become the king of un-funny. I dont see how this will be different. I heard hes funny in person. But not in movies, thats for daymn sure.

  31. Eddddieeeeee!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  32. Hopper Tungsten
