Martin Lawrence to Star in "Back to America"Submit Comment
Alcon Entertainment has acquired Martin Lawrence's "Back to America" pitch that will be drafted as a potential starring vehicle for Lawrence.

The comedy centers on a working-class man from Queens who discovers he is heir to the throne of an African country and travels there to claim his birthright.

Lawrence, most recently seen in "College Road Trip," is expected to reprise his role in a "Wild Hogs" sequel that Disney is prepping.

It'd be more stereotypically akin to Martin's previously abysmal and racially-charged films if they just called the damn thing "Black to America." C'mon, we all know the studio was thinking it, too. Nice, Martin, your career's such a shambles that you've resorted to ripping off the work of your frequent co-star (and presumed friend) Eddie Murphy. Vintage '80s Murphy, for that matter.

Who would have thought remaking "King Ralph" would be a bad idea? Me. I would have thought that.

"potential starring vehicle for Lawrence" Didn't he try this before, and it failed? Pairing him with Robbins didn't help, and he's had other films before. He can't stand alone unless he's playing off a white guy. He's not action, just a reaction.
