Lastly, it looks like Eddie Murphy wants all the smoke, and this time he’s calling out Puss in Boots!


When asked about any possibility of a Shrek 5, he shares that he’s ready to bring Donkey back and says that it’s long overdue:

“I’d absolutely be open if they ever came with another Shrek, I’d do it in two seconds. I love Donkey. You know, they did Puss in Boots movies. I was like, ‘They should have did a Donkey movie. Donkey is funnier than Puss in Boots. I mean, I love Puss in Boots, but he ain’t funny as the Donkey.” Murphy told Etalk in an interview.
