From The Wrap:
Brett Ratner told TheWrap Sunday that he’s in talks with comedian Eddie Murphy for yet another new project, despite the tepid opening of their caper movie this weekend.
“I’d make anything with Eddie,” Ratner said in an exclusive interview with TheWrap, declining to offer specifics on the project.
The project is not the widely reported “Beverly Hills Cop 4,” Ratner said, though the director told TheWrap he’d still like to make that one day.
On the weekend in which Ratner’s latest project with Murphy, the Universal-Relativity caper comedy “Tower Heist,” opened to a disappointing $25 million, the filmmaker said he was nonetheless “ecstatic” about the box office result.
“A $25 million opening is nothing to complain about, and I think it’s excellent in a market that is obviously soft,” he said, adding that audiences increased from Friday night to Saturday night.
