According to sources, Mr. Murphy will indeed play multiple roles in a big-screen version of ABC’s "Fantasy Island," which ran from 1978 to 1984 and therefore was probably never watched by anyone reading these words right now. (The show starred Ricardo Montalban and it was about a magical island on which guest stars could have their fondest wishes come true … temporarily.)
And the news just gets better: Murphy will be reuniting with his "Norbit" screenwriters on this flick, which he’ll get to work on right after "Starship Dave." No word yet on who’ll be directing this inevitable masterpiece. And how has nobody made a "Love Boat" flick yet?
