The Hollywood Reporter‘s Tatiana Siegel is announcing that Katt Williams, a stand-up comic (“The Pimp Chronicles”) and Norbit costar, will write and star in Marshalls, a DreamWorks comedy about “the first black marshals of the Old West.” Beloved envelope-pusher Eddie Murphy will produce and co-star. The two obvious recalls, of course, are (a) Murphy’s famous 48 HRS./Reggie Hammond line from 25 years ago — “I’m your worst fucking nightmare, a nigger with a badge!” and (b) Blazing Saddles again, perhaps with more edge and almost certainly with something other than jaunty Mel Brooks-like tone, for reasons of pride if nothing else.
