Eddie Murphy: Could be Both Boss and Tattoo -- and in the Hot Seat

Eddie MurphyFrom The Hollywood Reporter:

Eddie Murphy is ready to make dreams come true.

The actor is attached to star in Columbia Pictures' big-screen adaptation of "Fantasy Island."

Murphy will play multiple roles in the film, which is based on the popular TV series that ran from 1978-84 and starred Ricardo Montalban.

Described as a family-oriented comedy, the project will be written by Jay Scherick and David Ronn, who most recently teamed with Murphy on "Norbit."

Meanwhile news on Murphy from ex-Spice Girl and Baby Face's ex:

From Entertainment Wise:

Mel B has once again been enraged by the actions of Eddie Murphy, her former partner and father of new daughter Angel Iris.

Eddie has been seen on the arm of TV executive Tracey Edmonds as far back as December reports today’s Daily Mirror.

Mel B claims that she was still with Eddie at that time and is understandably distraught.

The star of Beverly Hills Cop still refuses to take a DNA test to prove he is the father of Angel Iris. Not that the poor kid would want to admit who her parents are anyway.

Meanwhile Tracy Edmonds is defending her man, according to Celebrity Baby Blog:

Tracey Edmonds has spoken out in his defense, arguing that his initial comments regarding paternity were taken out of context. When Eddie gave an interview on Dutch television in December and said -- in response to questions about whether he was excited to have a baby with former Spice Girl Melanie Brown -- that he did not know "whose child that is, until it comes out and has a blood test," he was not implying that he was not the baby's father, according to Tracey...only that there were other candidates.

The press went crazy and said Eddie Murphy says the baby's not mine. But he never said that. He just said, 'I want a paternity test.'
