After two strong installments, Beverly Hills Cop III missed the mark pretty badly, and didn’t only serve to stunt the franchise, but it signaled the decline of Murphy’s career as well. However, with a built in fan base of millions, and a familiar face/character in Eddie Murphy/Axel Foley, it was really just a matter of time before they got back on the horse.

This news comes after the development and death of a Beverly Hills Cop TV show that would have followed Axel’s son around, solving crimes and laughing oddly.

Frequent Murphy collaborator Brett Ratner isn’t attached to the project, as he once was, but the script is being developed by the guys that wrote Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles….

…so…

It’s going to be good?

No one can seem to make up their mind on what to do with the latest proposed incarnation of Beverly Hills Cop. Except Eddie Murphy. Judging by the rumors, it sounds like Eddie is going to be all-in regardless of the format or plot.

After CBS has passed on the show version, now Shawn Ryan, creator of The Shield and Terriers, has Tweeted that the project is now in film form, with the writing team behind Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol typing up a little story. Whether or not the story still revolves around Axel’s son, and an aging, still-on-the-job Axel Foley is anyone’s guess.

Judge Reinhold has been telling Eddie Murphy that he’s available to do this for the past 20 years, so someone should probably write in a Rosebud cameo.

Forbes decided to break out their calculators and make millionaires feel bad about themselves by comparing how much actors got paid for given movies against how much the movie eventually earned. King and Queen Loser are Eddie Murphy and Katherine Heigl.

Murphy’s films grossed $2.30 for every $1 he earned, and Heigl’s grossed $3.40 for every $1 she earned. Of course, money isn’t the true barometer of personal value. It’s also their terrible attitudes that help to determine. But it’s still good to have science backing this up.

The rest full list from Forbes:

1. Eddie Murphy ($2.30 for every $1 paid)
2. Katherine Heigl ($3.40 for every $1 paid)
3. Reese Witherspoon ($3.90 for every $1 paid)
4. Sandra Bullock ($5 for every $1 paid)
5. Jack Black ($5.20 for every $1 paid)
6. Nicolas Cage ($6 for every $1 paid)
7. Adam Sandler ($6.30 for every $1 paid)

Obama’s America: ‘Twins’ Sequel Will Star Eddie Murphy http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/obamas-america-twins-sequel-will-star-eddie-murphy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/obamas-america-twins-sequel-will-star-eddie-murphy/#comments Thu, 15 Nov 2012 01:19:37 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=252033 At what price diversity?

The post Obama’s America: ‘Twins’ Sequel Will Star Eddie Murphy appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It’s been just over a week since Chairman Obama “won” his second term in the White House, but the dictator-in-chief is already hard at work radically altering the very foundation of this country in order to fit his Marxist ideals. In his latest racial engineering scheme, Kenya’s favorite son has directed his Zionist co-conspirators in Hollywood to tarnish the legacy of the beloved Twins franchise with a sequel titled Triplets. While details are scarce, Deadline is reporting that these “Hollyweird” libs will shoehorn Eddie Murphy into the cast as a long-lost brother in order to further promote their twisted agenda.

Book Of Mormon star Josh Gad and Ryan Dixon are now set to script the treatment for Triplets, the Twins sequel that will be produced by Montecito for Universal Pictures. Dixon will write the script. The film has Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito attached to reprise their roles as the mismatched siblings, and Eddie Murphy is attached to play the third brother. Ivan Reitman will direct.

The entire scheme would be laughable if not for the fact that it ruins the plot of the original film. As you’ll recall, Schwarzenegger played a genetically pure superman who was created in a lab, while Danny DeVito played his subhuman byproduct twin brother. The science behind the film only works if one twin inherits all of the sought after genes, while the other inherits all of the undesirables. Adding a third brother to the mix, regardless of his race, totally invalidates the entire premise. Adding a black man only adds to the confusion. At what price diversity, America?

Eddie Murphy, an individual whose recent original ideas, when they haven’t been lacking altogether, have been pretty abysmal (Meet Dave), is shopping around the best role of his career, for television, and he’s got a pretty big name behind him.

Shawn Ryan, a man who hasn’t been hurting for original ideas (The Shield, The Chicago Code, Terriers, Lie to Me, The Unit) has joined Murphy in drumming up some interest in a Beverly Hills Cop sequel that would follow Axel Foley’s son as he tries to make a name for himself outside the shadow of his father. Murphy would make guest appearances, probably as Axel, and hopefully not as a big fat guy or a Klump.

The show has been pitched to two of the big four, with the other two pitches coming today. It’s safe to say that this project has supplanted the Beverly Hills Cop 4 movie with Brett Ratner. Because Ryan > Ratner.

It was discovered a few days ago that Food Network star Paula Deen is living with Type II Diabetes. How she of all people would wind up suffering from a disease caused by obesity and a lack of physical activity is anyone’s guess. Here are seven of my guesses. [Caution: This article may ruin not just your lunch, but all future meals in your lifetime.]

Ultimate Fantasy Deep Fried Cheesecake

Pretty sure the name conveys 99% of my point here, but I’ll keep writing anyway. She prepares these things in traditional Eastern fashion, using 30 Oriental spring roll wrappers. I’m guessing that she calls for more spring roll wrappers than are actually needed, because what chef could sit in front of 30 delicious cold spring roll wrappers while cooking and not get the itch to pop a few dozen in their mouth?

This recipe essentially takes one boring, blah, heart-healthy cheesecake and turns it into 30 individually wrapped flavor packages. And for you health nuts out there, there are mint sprig garnishes, so it’s practically a superfood!

Fisher Nutter Bacon Cheese Ball

She should just call this snack “the widowmaker.” It’s essentially one of those cheese balls rolled in nuts that were popular like 30 years ago, but in typical Paula Deen fashion, this motherf*cker is rolled in 10 slices of crumbled bacon. For some reason, this recipe also calls for one tablespoon of poppy seeds to be mixed in to the ball as well, which is a bit like shooting a BB gun at a freight train.

“What is that delightful nuance I’m tasting here?”

“Is it the one package of cream cheese? The two cups of cheddar? The ten slices of bacon? The myriad pecans? Or is it the faint whisper of the poppy?”

“Poppy seeds! Of course!”

(Both parties continue to eat and breathe heavily until they drift off, eventually dying painlessly in their sleep. They were both 19 years old.)

The post John Landis Doesn’t Know If Eddie Murphy Wants To Be Funny Anymore appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Having directed Eddie Murphy in both Trading Places and Coming to America, John Landis claims that he saw a marked change in the funnyman in the years in between the two projects. He claims that Eddie turned into “kind of a jerk” while filming the latter, leading Landis to believe that perhaps he didn’t want to be funny then, in 1988, and he might still not want to be funny now.

Eddie’s filmography since 1988 lends credence to this argument. Since 1988, Murphy’s catalog has consisted of almost nothing in the vicinty of “funny,” save for The Distinguished Gentleman in 1992, which was 19 years ago… and maybe Bowfinger.

While this is certainly just one man’s opinion, I can’t imagine a more qualified source than that of Landis, who knows both comedy and Murphy. If Landis is wrong and Murphy still wants to be funny, there’s still the question of whether or not he’s capable of it. Did he want to be funny in Norbit?

We hope not, but you be the judge.

Oh sweet Christ.

Remember that Eddie Murphy comeback everyone was so jazzed about? Well, you might want to lower your jazz hands in the wake of this news.

Eddie Murphy won’t be hosting the Oscars.

In a statement released by the AMPAS, Eddie Murphy has walked away from his hosting detail. Rather than sum it up for you, here’s the short release in its entirety:

Beverly Hills, CA – Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak announced that Eddie Murphy has withdrawn as host of the 84th Academy Awards. “I appreciate how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner, and we all wish him well,” said Sherak.

Commented Murphy, “First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job.”

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, 2012, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network. The Oscar® presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.

I respect Eddie’s allegiance to Ratner, who was instrumental in this whole “comeback” movement (Tower Heist, hand-picking Murphy to host the Oscars, etc.). But walking away from the high-profile gig seems more than a little misguided. It’s not like Ratner was unfairly driven out. He said some stupid shit and was politely shown the door. Eddie didn’t do anything wrong, so why should he leave?

Well, the hunt is on for a new Oscar host. Maybe we’ll be treated to the 3,141st partnership of Billy Crystal and Bruce Vilanch. Yay Oscars!

On the heels of a mediocre bow for the ensemble caper film Tower Heist, Brett Ratner is reportedly in talks to direct another new project starring Eddie Murphy.

The project is not Beverly Hills Cop 4, as Murphy has said recently that he’s not interested in tacking on another sequel to the seminal action-comedy. However, that hasn’t stopped Brett Ratner from telling everyone that he would love to direct the imaginary film.

Tower Heist scored $25 million this weekend and opened to tepid reviews, despite praise for an Eddie Murphy performance that harkens back to the comic actor‘s golden years in the mid-late 80′s.

For better or worse, Murphy and Ratner have developed something of a partnership, as Ratner is directing the Oscars, with Murphy signed on to host, and Murphy will be a voice in Ratner’s upcoming animated Honk Kong Phooey film.

With all these projects in the pipeline, it’s pretty easy to not be excited about a fourth teaming of the two, but let’s smile anyway and let them enjoy this moment.

“That’s terrific guys!”

Comedy legend Eddie Murphy returns to the big screen this weekend in Tower Heist. With a career spanning 30 years, there are plenty of great moments to choose from. But with the good comes a whole lot of bad, and in this case, that means almost everything from 1990 onward. To help you avoid the low lights, we’ve assembled nine of his worst works on one helpful list. Just steer clear of these while on Amazon or Netflix, and you’re Golden, Child. Ugh.

And to be clear, we’re not just kicking a man when he’s down. Check out 9 Reasons Eddie Murphy Is A Comic Genius.

Another 48 Hours

Walter Hill‘s 48 Hours is an action comedy classic. It’s surprisingly violent for the genre, and it features a “star is born” performance from Eddie Murphy, only a couple years before he took over the world with Beverly Hills Cop. This 1990 follow up had the same director and stars, but none of the urgency or hunger. The film winds up feeling as lazy as its title, with the same bits redone over and over. The ending is kind of fun, but this movie is the beginning of a long decline for Eddie.

The Haunted Mansion

In the summer of 2003, Disney had a surprise smash hit with a film adaptation of one of their famous theme park rides, Pirates of the Caribbean. They must of been super excited knowing they had this comedy take on another of their classic rides waiting in the wings for the fall. And then The Haunted Mansion opened and fell like a rock. The Pirates franchise spawned three hit sequels, with more on the way. The Haunted Mansion continues to be a popular ride at Disney World, and the DVD of the film is a staple of discount bins everywhere.

The Adventures of Pluto Nash

Unlike most people, I have actually watched Pluto Nash. It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, it was on cable, and I thought, “How bad can it be?” The sad truth is: It’s not the worst movie ever. It just isn’t remarkable or fun. Bad movies are normally a dime a dozen, except that Pluto Nash cost $110 Million, and it made back about 7 million. This turd put a stink on Eddie’s career he’s still rinsing off.

After spending the past couple decades or so pelting us with family fare such as Daddy Day Care, The Nutty Professor, Doctor Doolittle, Pluto Nash, Norbit, Shrek 1, Shrek 2, Shrek 3, Shrek 4, The Nutty Professor 2, and Meet Dave, Eddie Murphy has decided that it’s time to give us a little of the Eddie Murphy edge that helped us fall in love with the scrappy teenage comic in the early 80′s.

After knocking out those bleeding-edge Oscars in February (where he hopes to garner comparisons to bleeding-edge comic Billy Crystal), he is dumping all those familiar family roles to make Beverly Hills Cop into a TV show. About Axel Foley. And his son. So it’s pretty much a TV show about a family from a property that’s been in the cultural lexicon for the past 25 years.

Murphy wil produce the show and make appearances as Axel, who is now the chief of the Detroit Police Department. He claims he went the TV route because “None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing.”

It’s pretty clear he’s trying here, folks. And I…I think that’s just terrific.

The post Eight Other People Who Would Have Made Great Oscar Hosts 15 Years Ago appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
On Tuesday it was officially announced that Eddie Murphy will host the 2012 Academy Awards. Obviously he will share co-hosting duties with his sister and uncle, both of whom will be played by Eddie in a fat suit.

This announcement ended six months of speculation that began immediately after last year’s abysmal effort by Anne “What The Hell Is Comedic Timing?” Hathaway and James “Maybe I Should Just Pick One Or Two Hobbies And Stick With Them” Franco.

Of course, most observers figured the Academy would go with someone familiar and safe (and named Billy Crystal) this time around. However, it turns out that the producer of the 2012 telecast, Brett Ratner, was looking for someone a little less “safe” and a little more, I don’t know, starring in a film he directed that is being released this November. So they went with Eddie Murphy even though he is clearly past his comedic prime, having appeared in precisely two good films since the turn of the millennium.

Now, as evidenced by their attempt to be hip and connect with the youngsters last year, the Academy generally tries to choose a host who is at least somewhat commercially relevant. So this decision struck me as a little strange. If Murphy can’t entertain people with his movies, which last about 90 minutes, how the hell is he going to keep 300 million people glued to the tube for four and a half hours this February? Sure, Eddie is a comedy legend, and he would have been a fantastic host back in 1993. But have you seen Meet Dave?

That being said, I don’t particularly enjoy going against the grain. In fact, I love the establishment. If “the man” writes something on the wall, I read it and don’t ask questions. So if this “picking Oscar hosts who were really awesome 15 years ago” thing is the direction the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences wishes to go, that’s cool. I even have a few suggestions for other has-been Hollywood types the Academy might want to keep in mind for the future. You’re welcome, guys.

Chevy Chase

In his prime, Chevy Chase was a physical comedy genius and a true master of the dry one-liner. He rose to stardom as an original cast member of Saturday Night Live, then parlayed that notoriety into a successful movie career, making classic comedic turns in such films as Caddyshack, Vacation, Fletch, ¡Three Amigos! and, of course, Christmas Vacation. Chevy was so funny in the 70s and 80s that he actually did host the Oscars back then. Twice. And he was great. He opened the 1987 telecast with the classic greeting, “Good evening, Hollywood phonies!”

Sadly, that was one of the last funny things Chevy Chase did for about 20 years. For some reason, Chevy just stopped being funny. Maybe all those comedic pratfalls just took a toll on his body. Or maybe all the drugs he took to numb the pain of those pratfalls took a toll on his brain. But one way or another, Chevy lost it. Luckily, in the last two years he’s been able to regain some of his old form in the NBC sitcom Community, so he might be the perfect guy to follow Eddie Murphy in 2013.

Dan Aykroyd

Dan Aykroyd was probably never quite as brilliant as contemporaries Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, or Steve Martin, but he had some pretty great moments. The unscrupulous toy company executive on SNL selling his “Bag O’ Glass”? Hilarious. Blues Brothers? Classic. Trading Places with co-star Eddie Murphy? Pretty funny. Ghostbusters? Perfect. But all good things come to an end, and I’ve got one word for you that pretty much sums up the man’s current ability: Crossroads. So yeah, these days old Danny boy would be wise to just focus on hocking his wine and liquor products and leave the comedy to others. Which means he’s just the type of guy the Academy is looking for.

His next movie, Tower Heist, looks like it might actually be good despite the involvement of Brett Ratner, he’s going to voice the universally beloved Hong Kong Phooey in a big-screen adaptation of same, and now it’s being reported that he’s the top contender to host next year’s Oscars ceremony. Hi-yah!

This is not close to being a done deal, but apparently one of the producers of the telecast, the aforementioned Brett Ratner, is very enthusiastic about the job going to Eddie, who is said to be “showing interest.” And many are saying that he seems like a perfect fit for the job, what with his experience doing live TV comedy on Saturday Night Live, his worldwide star power, and his cinephilia, supposedly being able to “quote scenes from every single movie word for word,” according to one source. I can’t wait to see him do Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend! (Deadline)

Enough, Already: 9 Songs That Are Wildly Overused In Film http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/enough-already-9-wildly-overused-songs-in-films/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/enough-already-9-wildly-overused-songs-in-films/#comments Thu, 25 Aug 2011 23:39:28 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=226004 This list could constitute a ten year-old's playlist for two years.

The post Enough, Already: 9 Songs That Are Wildly Overused In Film appeared first on Screen Junkies.

A carefully crafted soundtrack aids the audience in going on a journey with a film’s characters, whereas a lazy soundtrack says, “here’s some happy feel-good crap; Turn your brain off and try not to confuse our film with She’s All That.”

The presence of these songs in any film conveys that the producers want to use something familiar and trite enough that you might confuse their bad movie with some other movie that probably isn’t as awful as the crappy film you’re watching.

Get excited.

9. “Who Let The Dogs Out?” – Baha Men

There was once a time when children’s films were made that didn’t contain this song. It was a simpler, richer time for cinema. If you hear this song and aren’t having an uproarious time, then you aren’t doing what the producers of the movie want you to do. Obey the producers. They work hard. This song is lazily featured in The Hangover, Shallow Hal, Rugrats in Paris, and Snow Dogs, which is delightful, because that film is ABOUT DOGS (being let out).

This song is used when a child, Zach Galifiankis, or an animated animal is raising all kinds of heck. 

8. “Gimme Shelter” – The Rolling Stones

This song became a de facto Scorsese trademark in Goodfellas, Casino, and The Departed, it has also popped up in Air America, Layer Cake, Adventures in Babysitting, Children of Men, and myriad television shows.

This song is used to signify that stuff is happening. 

7. “Semi-Charmed Life” – Third Eye Blind

One of the most ubiquitous songs of the late 90’s crept into more than a handful of films and almost every trailer, letting audiences know that seeing this movie would be a really good time, just like crystal meth, which this song is about. It’s featured in Dirty Work, Mr. Nice Guy, American Pie, Wild Things, and Contact.

This song is used when a creative-type in San Francisco is riding their bike home from work to their apartment and roommates.

Get ready for a Hong Kong Phooey who yells for no good reason. Eddie Murphy is in talks to voice the famous dog janitor/ninja in the upcoming film. The live action/animated adaptation of the Hanna Barbera cartoon will be directed by Alex Zamm who is best known for Dr. Doolittle: Million Dollar Mutts and  Tooth Fairy 2 which are apparently films that exist in some form.

Producers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove say, “We could not be happier that Eddie Murphy will star as Phooey. There is no overstating his contributions to cinema, and to such enduring stars of family entertainments such as Shrek and Dr. Doolittle. We look forward to watching him re-imagine yet another classic character.”

Other producer Brett Ratner probably commented, “I like it when he does the farts. The farts are good.” (Deadline)

When Alan Alda’s Madoff-esque fat cat character absconds with the pensions of all his professional slaves, Ben Stiller rises to action. He bands together with the former employees to infiltrate his penthouse fortress to try to take what belongs to them. Hence, The Tower Heist.

Movies like New Year’s Eve should take note. THIS is how you make a comedy with an ensemble cast. You use likable actors like Matthew Broderick. That way, audiences are happy and the Broderick-Parker children are still fed. Everyone wins!!

It Seems Only Usher Or Eddie Murphy Could Play James Brown http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/it-seems-only-usher-or-eddie-murphy-could-play-james-brown/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/it-seems-only-usher-or-eddie-murphy-could-play-james-brown/#comments Tue, 05 Apr 2011 00:02:52 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205314 Who best embodies this picture: Usher or Eddie Murphy? Apparently, those are your only two choices.

The post It Seems Only Usher Or Eddie Murphy Could Play James Brown appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The casting rumors for the role of James Brown in a long-dormant biopic are read like a shopping list entitled “Bad Decisions.” America’s sweetheart Chris Brown (!) has recently fallen by the wayside due to some “unpleasantness,” but as one falls, two new names emerge. Usher and Eddie Murphy have been cited by JB’s daughter, Yanna Brown, as the two frontrunners for the part. Fans of cinema and James Brown have no choice but to look at these candidates in a “lesser of two evils”-type context.

Usher can dance and sing. But he can’t really act, as every role he’s ever had demonstrates. Eddie can act, sometimes. But he can’t sing, as that “My Girl Likes to Party All the Time” song proves. Further he’s got some James Brown baggage, as his parody of him for “SNL”s “James Brown’s Hot Tub Party” will be hard to shake during even the most serious performance.

Why the powers that be (whoever that is in this case) think that their talent pool consists of “Eddie Murphy” and “Usher” is beyond me. If the story of James Brown is compelling enough, a open call to find a good fit sounds like the way to go, as I can’t imagine either Eddie Murphy or Usher proving to be a huge box office draw, unless James Brown had lots of documented conversations with animals or spent a lot of time dancing around, playing with a hat.

We’ve got a couple official pics from the year’s two biggest comedies. See if you can find some humor in them.

Treat yourself to the first look at a still from Brett Ratner‘s upcoming Tower Heist, an ensemble comedy that can best be described as a dorkier Ocean’s Eleven. Aside from the pictured Ben Stiller, Michael Pena, Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, and Eddie Murphy, the film boasts Alan Alda, Téa Leoni, Gabourey Sidibe, and Judd Hirsch. The film follows a group of people that all have been swindled by a Madoff-like Alan Alda. This film could either become more than the sum of its parts or a complete trainwreck, and having Ratner at the helm doesn’t provide a lot more certainty. The good news is that Stiller appears to be playing a regular person, and not someone who is either borderline retarded or absurdly evil. But appearances can be deceiving. Audiences will find out November 4th when Tower Heist hits theaters.

While Tower Heist in up in the air, the gang behind The Hangover 2 has a solid pedigree, both critically and financially, making success theirs to lose. Here’s a still from the film, demonstrating that, yes, they are actually in Thailand. They’re sweaty and there’s a monkey. See? Thailand. Zach Galifiankis is looking a little more like a white supremacist than anything else with that shaved head, but other than that, Bradley Cooper is still the sexy one, Ed Helms still looks overwhelmed, and the baby is now a monkey. Yeah, this will make $200 million. (Playlist)

The 1st Assistant Camera on Brett Ratner's The Tower Heist had better not forget to put a long lens on the order. Precious star Gabourey Sidibe has picked up an unknown role on the film, as has "Eastbound and Down's" very funny Michael Pena. They'll join Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in the film that pits the little guy against a crooked Bernie Madoff type played by Alan Alda. Other than that, we don't have a lot of details. But now we know that the heist most likely won't involve taking the stairs. And before you chastise me in the comments section for making a fat joke at Sidibe's expense, you should know it was a lazy joke at Pena's expense. And no, not because he's Mexican. Man, I can't win with you guys. (Deadline)

Murphy will be joining Ben Stiller in Brett Ratner's Tower Heist. This the second time that Murphy was attached to this film. He was the initial star years ago while it was in development. He passed, then Chris Rock passed, and then Chris Tucker passed. Then Ben Stiller (the next logical choice) took over the role. No word yet on which supporting character Murphy will play, but I've got a good feeling that Ben Stiller will learn the consequences of touching his radio. (EW)

Far Away Land has grown tiresome, and the jokes about the fairy tale creatures we know and love fall flat. Will the Shrek series go out with a bang or a soft, wet fart? Find out May 21, 2010.

The new teaser trailer for Shrek Forever After has dropped, and it showcases all the crazy characters we've come to know and love over the previous three films. The question is, will this fourth installment be as unnecessary as the last one? Probably not since anything with a green ogre in it seems to rake in sh*t buckets full of cold, hard cheddar. And this Shrek is in 3D, so Donkey or his poop will probably get flung at us or something. It appears that in Shrek Forever After, what Dreamworks is calling THE FINAL CHAPTER, we're transported to a far far away land called Far, Far Away Land where Shrek has never existed. Donkey doesn't know who he is and Puss is overweight and lazy. Tehe. Husky cats are funny.  Shrek Forever After hits theaters May 21st, 2010. Check out the teaser trailer after the jump.
