From The Writer of Zodiac (Seriously): A Nutty Professor Reboot In The Works

It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. This time, it's a...Nutty Professor reboot. Yay.

A new cinematic take on the character is coming from screenwriter James Vanderbilt and Project X Entertainment. Project X recently acquired the rights to the Nutty Professor and are set on bringing the character to a new generation. Audiences may remember the Jerry Lewis or Eddie Murphy takes on the character but there is no word yet on who will play the titular role. 

Not much else is known about the project as it is early in development but this is the second popular property that Project X has picked up after picking up the rights to the Scream franchise as well. We will watch this reboot with great interest.
