Beverly Hills Cop 4 No Longer Just A Rumour

You heard that right… Eddie’s bringing back Axel Foley baby! This week the rumours of a 4th Beverly Hills Cop film have been confirmed by Variety, who report that Eddie Murphy is working closely with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Paramount to revive the popular franchise. It’s definitely a bit of a risk… some may remember that Beverly Hills Cop III bombed at the box office, despite the massive success of the first two flicks. There’s also the fact that a lot of moviegoers may never have seen any of the original films, so they’ll have to work at making Axel hip and current. (Unfortunately, that could also be this movie’s undoing.) Still it would be nice to have Eddie Murphy doing something halfway decent for a change (to be fair, his performance in Dreamgirls is apparently getting rave reviews). So who’s in for Beverly Hills Cop IV?
