Murphy, Ratner Team On Mockumentary

Netflix is in negotiations to pick up the Brett Ratner-directed mockumentary “Soul Soul Soul: The Murray Murray Story” starring Eddie Murphy.

Murphy will play Murray Murray, a soul singer from the early 1960s and a legend in his own mind. He puts his old band back together and tries to take down hip-hop when a hot artist samples his hit song from 1962.

Chris Case penned the script while Brian Grazer and Tyler Mitchell will produce.
