Producer Brian Grazer has already teamed up with Netflix for the fourth season of Arrested Development, and now he says he’s going to bring a movie to the streaming service — starring Eddie Murphy.

“I’m going to do a movie with Netflix,” he told Bloomberg. “I’m going to do a tour-de-force movie that’s cinema verite with Eddie Murphy being as raw as he can be.”

Grazer, who’s best known for producing films like A Beautiful Mind and Apollo 13, as well as TV shows like Friday Night Lights, 24, and Empire, added that a fifth season of Arrested Development is still in the works for Netflix.

“They way they govern their creativity is exceptional,” he said about the streaming service. “They believe that if they like the idea and the foundational elements, you’re just off to do what you believe in, and they trust it. And it’s been working for them.”

EW has reached out to Netflix for comment. Watch Grazer’s full interview at Bloomberg.
