Adam Sandler tops Forbes' list of most-overpaid actors


Comedian dethrones Eddie Murphy for the dubious distinction this year.

AMERICAN comedian Adam Sandler topped Forbes' list of Hollywood's most-overpaid actors, commanding a high up-front fee while delivering middling returns, the magazine said on Monday.

Sandler, 47, the star of recent comedies Jack & Jill and That's My Boy, dethroned Eddie Murphy for the dubious distinction. Forbes estimated that Sandler's last three films returned an average of US$3.40 (about RM11) for every dollar he was paid.

Murphy topped last year's list, returning an average of US$2.30 (RM6.90) at the box office for each dollar earned.

Katherine Heigl, who starred in the poorly performing films Killers and One For The Money, placed slightly behind Sandler, returning an average of US$3.50 (RM11.20) per every dollar she earned.

The list, compiled annually by Forbes, counts the last three films an actor has starred in over the past three years. This year's list was cut off at June 1, and so it excluded Sandler's buddy comedy Grown Ups 2, which was released in July and performed well at the box office.

Forbes did not say how much Sandler earned on his last three films. But the magazine said he was one of the few movie stars who could still command more than US$15mil (RM48mil) per film, on an "up-front" arrangement. Hollywood studios in recent years have shifted to paying smaller up-front fees and tie actors' pay with the film's box-office performance.

The magazine said it examined actors' pay, film budgets and expenses to calculate the average return an actor brings per dollar paid.

Reese Witherspoon, the star of recent films Water For Elephants and This Means War, was third on this list, with an average return of US$3.90 (RM12.50) for every dollar she was paid.

Nicolas Cage was fourth, with a US$6 (RM19.20) average return, and comedian Kevin James was fifth, returning an average of US$6.10 (RM19.60) – Reuters

Eddie Murphy to return as Beverly Hills Cop


A fourth feature of the police comedy franchise will be directed by Brett Ratner.

THE police comedy film series starring Eddie Murphy will soon return to the silver screen for a fourth movie, announced.

Thirty years after its debut, the Beverly Hills Cop franchise will provide the basis for a fourth movie, this time taking the form of a reboot.

Eddie Murphy will return to the legendary role of Axel Foley, a fearless cop who knows how to speak his mind. In the forthcoming feature, the character will leave the California sun and return to his roots in Detroit.

Jerry Bruckheimer and Paramount are producing the show, which will be directed by Brett Ratner. The director behind the Rush Hour franchise worked with Murphy on the set of Tower Heist in 2011. Ratner will follow in the footsteps of Martin Brest, Tony Scott and John Landis, who directed the first three Bevery Hills Cop movies in 1984, 1987 and 1994.

News that Bevery Hills Cop will return to cinema comes several months after CBS decided no to go ahead with plans for a series on the franchise. In the pilot for the series, which never got off the ground, Murphy made a cameo, which unexpectedly led to a new level of enthusiasm for the Axel Foley character. – AFP Relaxnews
