Eddie Murphy and Paramount Team Up for Beverly Hills Cop 4

Posted July 29, 2013 04:26 PM by Webmaster

Paramount


Paramount Pictures has asked Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec to write a script for a new Beverly Hills Cop film. According to early reports, Eddie Murphy has already agreed to return as Detective Axel Foley.

Appelbaum and Nemec also penned the script for Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), starring Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner.

Earlier this year, Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey announced that the studio is also teaming up with Sony Pictures Television to co-produce a pilot for a series based on Martin Brest's original film. See our news article here.

Note: Beverly Hills Cop is already available on Blu-ray in the United States. You can see our listing and review of this release here.

Does this mean we'll get a box set of all 4 before 2 and 3 get individual releases?

my first reaction was to say "desperate move Eddie!" but then I remembered Stallone revisiting RAMBO and ROCKY.... and ending up making 2 of my favorite movies of those franchises....

Ghost Protocol had some smart writing and cool set pieces so these two writers may come up with something worthy of the first two films. I would still like to see the discarded pilot TV episode (especially considering the talent involved) but a theatrical sequel is great news. We MUST, as a people, speak out in unison to keep Ratner from getting anywhere near this thing though.

Given the generally sad state of the cop comedy sub-genre these days, and Murphy's mostly declining track record since Pluto Nash, I don't see much to get excited about. The first two films are worth owning as a discounted double feature set, but Lethal Weapons I-III took the basic formula and improved upon it, surpassing Murphy's films in almost every way.

I have a feeling I'll be saying "meh" to BHC4 as I watch it on video.

"When was the last time Eddie Muprhy was in a good movie, gave a good performance or been in a movie that's done well?"

The Shrek films, of which he was on integral cast member.

Wow, what a terrific idea. It will absolutely be one of the best movies ever made and will probably sweep the Oscars too. Eddie Murphy has never made a bad movie. This is so much better than a movie without a number after the title. I never get tired of sequels.

Oops, gotta go. It's medication time.

Yeah, it is a desperate move on Murphy's part. He's been box-office poison for years. Didn't help that most of the movies sucked. But like AKORIS said, the last two Rambo and Rocky movies were much much better than anyone expected. And I'm not even a Stallone fan (FWIW, I hate those "Expendable" films). THE worst sequel to an 80's film that is being kicked around? "Triplets"! The sequel to "Twins" that absolutely no one asked for or wants. Also rumored to be starring Eddy Murphy. As the third brother. But the twist is, he's black! Oh, the hilarity!

I really hope this turns out to be rated R, that's when Murphy's at his best. Just look at Ice Cube in "21 Jump Street" as compared to his "family movies." R-rated = more potential funny.

I think they should get the team behind 21 Jump Street involved, then it might work. I didn't like Ghost Protocol at all. Still, who knows, Murphy as Foley one more time might inspire him to get back to greatness.

While the rest of his fellow Detroit cops struggle financially thanks to the bankruptcy ruling, Axel Foley f*cks off to California one more time to scam some more free accommodation from a luxury hotel/private mansion.

I'm not sure if another Beverly Hills Cop sequel, is going to work after all these many years. Since the franchise, Eddie Murphy's movie career, and popularity has diminished significantly. The movies that he has starred in for the past few years, have been terrible, and box office flops. Paramount may be able to pull a rabbit out of a hat with Beverly Hills Cop 4, to help rejuvenate Eddie Murphy movie career, but it would be a miracle.

Just a little while ago I ordered the trilogy set from Germany. Looks like the US will get it soon now too if BHC4 comes to fruition.

Well it cant be worse than BHC3, thats just impossible. And as others have said... if its not rated R, dont bother!

The first 2 + first 15 minutes of the 3rd made for a solid franchise. Yes, they used what happened as motivation for Axel to go back to BH but it also took away one of the most underrated, much needed characters in the series. One of the best "R" comedy scenes of all-time happened in that first confrontation between Axel and Todd at the station.

The sad thing is because of how BH3 began, I would be shocked if this was anything more than pushing the PG-13 line without going into R territory. Or maybe they'll surprise us and go back to use the structure of the first one for this one. I don't think Paul Reiser will be too difficult to get on board. Also, didn't Eddie say he was done with "R" movies? Perhaps he'll back down from that stance now that his kids are old enough for those movies.

I absolutely LOVED BHC1 and 2. 3 was bad. I'm an old school Eddie Murphy fan and have honestly hated almost everything he's done for such a long time now...it'll be nice to see him return to this character. As long as the writing is solid, it's R rated, and Eddie can return to his 'old self' I could see this being a hit. I miss Eddie Murphy!!

As bad as most of his recent movies have been, you can't deny movies like Trading Places, 48 Hrs, BHC, Delirious, Raw, and a few others. And his days on SNL were the funniest that show has ever been!!

BTW... I saw him live in Richmond VA during his RAW tour.... AWESOME!!
