Paramount has set the date of March 25th, 2016 for the release of the fourth installment for Beverly Hills Cop with Eddie Murphy set to reprise his role as the wise-cracking detective Axel Foley.
Jerry Bruckheimer is back as producer, and Brett Ratner is directing the pic, which will see Murphy’s Foley returning to his Detroit roots. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are writing the script. Perhaps Paramount is giving another movie a chance since the storyline from the movies was going to be adapted for television last year. CBS ordered a pilot from Shawn Ryan and Murphy that was to follow the adventures of Foley’s cop son, with Barry Sonnenfeld directing and Murphy set to appear in the pilot and possibly recur. But the network surprisingly passed on the project at the eleventh hour.
