Eddie Murphy to film in Denver-area

DENVER ” The action won’t start until October, but lights and cameras will soon be focused on Colorado.

A dark Paramount Pictures comedy entitled “NowhereLand” will be shot in the Denver area in just a couple of months.

The development was reported Tuesday by Denver’s KUSA-TV. The film is scheduled to star comedian Eddie Murphy, who was nominated for an Academy Award last year for his work in “Dreamgirls.”

“This will be the largest production in Colorado in several years and we hope this is a sign of good things to come for our film industry,” Gov. Bill Ritter said Wednesday in a statement issued through the Colorado Film Commission.

“We are thrilled the Mile High City will be a backdrop for this high visibility production,” Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper added.

Murphy’s character is described as a financial executive whose career is spiraling downward, but who finds solutions to his problems in the imaginary world of his daughter.
