The chosen one of this week’s Unfinished Business TELEVISION DEEP DIVE is Eddie Murphy’s first attempt at a PG-13 fantasy adventure, THE GOLDEN CHILD. How did a serious detective story intended for Mel Gibson become a Beverly Hills Cop-like comedy vehicle for Eddie? Plus we share our first experiences with the movie, how it was supposed to launch an Indiana Jones-like franchise for Eddie, and who the other A-list filmmakers that Eddie sought for this misunderstood epic.

This is the first teaser from AJ Epyx Productions for the upcoming feature-length western, AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS. We are currently in the funding and pre-production phase of the project. The story follows two young brothers of different races who witness the brutal murder of their parents. Reunited as men, the maps tattooed on their arms lead them to the cache of jewels stolen from the murderers. The screenplay by Drew Henriksen (POWER OF PRAYER) with story by Henriksen, Andre´ Joseph, and Chris Corulla, Jr. was recently the recipient of “Best Feature Length Screenplay” at the 2019 World Music & Independent Film Festival as well as making semi-finalist status at the Utah Film Festival.
