Eddie Murphy will continue its collaboration with Prime Video even after making The Prince Seeks Son, as the interpreter will be the protagonist of the comedy Candy Cane Lane. The film is directed by Reginald Hudlin.
The story will deal with situations in which childhood and the Christmas holidays are central. Production of the film will begin during the winter period in Los Angeles. The feature film is being made by Amazon Studios, Imagine Entertainment and Eddie Murphy Productions. The screenplay was written by Kelly Younger.
The partnership between Eddie Murphy and Reginald Hudlin restores the partnership that began in 1992 during the making of the film The Prince of Women. Candy Cane Lane is one of the projects that is part of Eddie Murphy’s agreement with Prime Video.
Hudlin himself stated:
The Christmas holidays are my favorite. Just ask my family about the nine-hour playlist I made especially for Christmas. I am thrilled to be working with Eddie Murphy, Brian Grazer and Amazon again.
While Jennifer Salke of Amazon Studios added:
Eddie Murphy is a name that knows how to bring audiences around the world together, as The Prince seeks Son proved. And we can’t wait for all of this to happen again.
