Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy became another victim of the Internet rumor mill when it was reported in August 2009 that he died after a fatal accident on the L.A. set of his upcoming movie "Left 4 Dead." The Eddie Murphy death rumor actually goes back 12 months. The recycled rumors say that Eddie Murphy died when a special effects mishap turned fatal. But the claims that Eddie Murphy was dead are untrue. In fact, Eddie Murphy is not even starring in a movie version of the Left 4 Dead video game, nor is such a movie even in production. Daniel A.
