Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The film had a troubled production for a decade. Although announced in 2012, it wasn't until 2021 when it was planned to start shooting. By this point Eddie Murphy was no longer involved in the project, with instead Tracy Morgan looking to replace him.
  2. Ivan Reitman passed away in February 2022, preventing him from returning to directing duties.
  3. Ivan's son Jason put the idea to an end following his father's death.


  • The project was permanently cancelled after 11 years of development hell.
