Nicole Ari Parker, DeRay Davis and Ronny Cox are joining the Eddie Murphy comedy “NowhereLand” for Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Parker plays the separated wife of Murphy’s character, Evan. She can’t understand his fascination with their 6-year-old daughter’s imaginary world, which Murphy explores to help solve his work problems.
Davis plays Evan’s longtime friend, a therapist who calls himself the Man Whisperer and believes that all Evan needs to overcome his troubles is a good cry.
Cox plays the humorless capital fund group boss who suspects Evan of insider trading but doesn’t care as long as he gets results. Thomas Haden Church also stars as Murphy’s ruthless co-worker.
Karey Kirkpatrick will direct the film from a script by Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson.
