Eddie Murphy is in talks with Netflix to film a series of comedy specials in a deal worth R975 million.
The "Nutty Professor" actor recently admitted he is keen to return to stand-up comedy and sources told TMZ he's in talks with the streaming service to record an unspecified number of specials for them.
A R975 million is on offer, dwarfing the R836 million which Netflix paid to Dave Chappelle in 2017 for three specials and the R557 million Chris Rock earned for two in 2016.
The 58-year-old star recently promised his stand-up return would come when "everything" was "right".
Speaking in a clip from Netflix's 'Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee', he said: "I'm going to do it again. Everything just has to be right. You have to get up there and start working out. Still gotta go to the comedy club."
