EDDIE MURPHY MAY GO BACK TO STANDUP: Actor flirts with retirement from films
Sunday, July 6, 2008

Is Eddie Murphy getting tired of the Hollywood grind? While plugging his upcoming film "Meet Dave," due in theaters July 11, the actor told "Extra's" Tanika Ray that he may leave movies for good and return to his roots on stage.      

"I have close to fifty movies and it's like, why am I in the movies?" he said, adding, "I've done that part now. I'll go back to the stage and do standup."     

Murphy, 47, is still attached to revive his Axel Foley character in a fourth "Beverly Hills Cop" film. He admits to having had initial reservations about the project, because "the movie wasn't ready to be done." Murphy said he agreed to do "Cop 3" because he was offered an obscene amount of money.

"They said this is how much we're going to pay you. I said, 'let's go shoot it! I don't care if the script ain't right," he said.            

As for Eddie's love life, the bachelor told "Extra" he is currently looking for a woman with "just honesty and some other things."
