Eddie Murphy Multitasking in Norbit

May 13, 2005

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story director Rawson Marshall Thurber is coming onboard the Eddie Murphy comedy Norbit (formerly titled Death Do Us Part) at DreamWorks Pictures.

In the film, in which he'll play multiple characters, Murphy stars as Norbit, a meek guy pressed into marrying a monstrous woman (also played by Murphy). When he subsequently meets the woman of his dreams, he has to figure out a way to be with her.

The original script was written by Eddie and Charlie Murphy, with a rewrite by Guess Who screenwriters Jay Scherick and David Ronn - who recently were hired by DreamWorks to write the bigscreen version of Baywatch.
