It’s long been rumoured that there could be a Beverly Hills Cops 4 in the works however, in a Rolling Stones interview, Eddie Murphy put an end to those rumours. The 2012 Oscars’ Host said that there will not be a movie, however he is hoping to produce a TV show based on the popular 80/90s films.
Eddie Murphy told Rolling Stone, “They’re not doing it. What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I’d do the pilot, show up here and there. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong”.
Hopefully by moving Axel to Detroit & having his son in charge, this could be a fresh/fun kickstart to the popular franchise and perhaps may even get a new generation interested in the films!
See where it all started (back in 1984) in this trailer for the original Beverly Hills Cops.
