So I was just IMDB-ing (if that’s a word?) Beverly Hills Cop and noticed they’re making a Beverly Hills Cop 4 that will be out in 2016. Brilliant. Yay!! *clap clap* I have a soft spot in my heart for the Beverly Hills Cop movies. Although I’m not quite sure how long they’ve announced this for but Eddie Murphy ain’t doing it unless it comes along with an incredible script. (How many more Beverly Hills Cop plot lines can they have? And when do audiences grow hoary of the concept of a riotous cop determined to solve the murders/shootings of his friends?) According to Murphy, he’s “not doing a shitty movie just to make some paper.” I’m not sure how much more room Hollywood has to do this kind of stuff, but we will find out.
Link down below for the IMDB page.
Few details are known. The plot is unknown. The release year is 2016, although I’m almost positive it will be pushed back a few years or months after 2016, due to the circumstance this movie has to be absolutely incredible to be made. (I doubt it will be but let the excitement ensue anyway.)
Directing this feature will be – Brett Ratner who has directed movies such as the Rush Hour franchise, X-Men: The Last Stand, Tower Heist, and Hercules. He has a good mix of epic action films and comedy in his repertoire.
Written by Josh Appelbaum who has also written the likes of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
And of course it will be starring Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, possibly the craziest, most hell-bent cop ever. (After Jack Bauer…if he was a cop)
It will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (per usual) and Eddie Murphy.
So, all in all, cross your fingers this movie gets made and will average above a C+.
