Eddie Murphy’s A Thousand Words to Hit Theaters after Three Years on the Shelf

By

Eddie Murphy’s A Thousand Words will be released January 2012, after the film was held in limbo by the Dreamworks/Paramount split and its own reported terribleness. The movie follows Murphy’s character, a callow man who finds out he only has 1,000 words to speak until he dies, so at least it’s only about 8 minutes long.
