Eddie Murphy’s “A Thousand Words” FINALLY Gets Release Date!

Eddie Murphy's "A Thousand Words" FINALLY Gets Release Date!

Damn! Talk about being raised from the dead. Finally… after how many years, this baby will finally be released. What’s the point now, really?

Anyway… I came across the following on Deadline minutes ago…

Paramount said today that it will release DreamWorks’ Eddie Murphy starrer A Thousand Words on Jan. 13, 2012. The comedic drama — directed by Brian Robbins, who previously teamed with Murphy on Meet Dave and Norbit — had been sitting around awhile.

What’s A Thousand Words about again? In the film, Murphy plays a busy, high-powered literary agent who doesn’t spend enough time with his wife (played by Kerry Washington) and son, discovers that he only has a thousand more words to speak before he dies.

Sounds high-concept enough, right?

I wonder what the heck happened? What was the deal? That January 13th release date certainly doesn’t inspire much confidence in me… not like I had much before, after almost 3 years in limbo, which is generally not a very good sign.

So this means we should see a trailer very soon then right? Can’t wait! Ok, I’m lying :)
