According to Variety, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the writing team behind Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, have been signed to pen the script for Johnny Blaze, an action-comedy with Eddie Murphy already attached to star. Murphy would play the title role, "an old-school rapper who retires and becomes a private eye who solves crimes within the hip-hop world." The concept was pitched to Dreamworks by Murphy and Brian Grazer, who worked together on the Nutty Professor series.
