But Grazer’s disclosure might have been premature. “Nothing is resolved, nothing is greenlit,” an individual close to the project told TheWrap on Wednesday. “There’s been a discussion. That’s about it.”
The producer has a long-standing relationship with Netflix, as it has been streaming his show “Arrested Development” for years.
In fact, Season 4 of the show starring Jason Bateman premiered on Netflix on May 26, 2013, and consisted of 15 episodes after Fox canceled it in 2006. More “Arrested Development” is coming to Netflix in mid-2016.
“The way they govern their creativity is exceptional,” Grazer said about the streaming platform. “If they like the idea and the foundational elements, you are just off to do what you believe in and they trust it and it’s been working for them.”
Grazer is best known for being a producer on films like “A Beautiful Mind,” “Splash” and “The Da Vinci Code,” as well as television titles including “24,” “Friday Night Lights,” and more recently, the hit Fox show “Empire.”
Murphy’s credits include “The Nutty Professor” and “Boomerang,” on which Grazer also served as producer, as well as “Doctor Doolittle” and “Daddy Daycare.” He is currently filming “Beverly Hills Cop 4.”
