“Beverly Hills Cop 4” May Be On The Way
A new “Beverly Hills Cop” movie may be under the way. The news was recently revealed by
directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. The duo mentioned that after they received support from Jerry Bruckheimer, the pair auditioned for Eddie Murphy. We hear shooting will take place primarily in Detroit, with the transplanted Axel Foley returning home and clashing with a hardened cop while tracking down a criminal. Tom Hardy and Channing Tatum have been mentioned as possibilities for the the film, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
Beverly Hills Cop is a series of action comedy films and an unaired television pilot based on characters created by Daniel Petrie, Jr. and Danilo Bach. The films star Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a street-smart Detroit cop who travels to Beverly Hills, California to investigate crimes, even though it is out of his jurisdiction. There, he meets Detective Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold), Sergeant John Taggart (John Ashton), and Lieutenant Andrew Bogomil (Ronny Cox). Ashton and Cox do not appear in Beverly Hills Cop III. Murphy, Reinhold, and Gil Hill, who plays Axel’s boss, Inspector Todd, are the only actors who appear in all three films. Harold Faltermeyer produced the now famous “Axel F” theme song heard throughout the series. The series as a whole have been distributed by Paramount Pictures. The films have made a total of $735,534,503 at the worldwide box office.
Following a failed attempt at a television series based on the films, Paramount decided to produce another film with a currently unknown release date.
