Eddie Murphy To Star In “Beverly Hills Cop 4”

July 28, 2013

A pilot for a BEVERLY HILLS COP television show, produced by Sony Pictures TV in association with Paramount and CBS, will not go to series. The pilot was produced by Eddie Murphy and show writer Shawn Ryan. It starred Brandon T. Jackson as Axel Foley’s son with Eddie Murphy making a cameo.

Apparently his cameo stole the show and interest in a new sequel was sparked. Since the TV show is dead in the water, Paramount is quickly moving forward on Beverly Hills Cop 4.

Eddie Murphy will return as Axel Foley and the studio has hired Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec to write the script. This is the writing team responsible for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot.

Besides for the occasional Shrek movie, Eddie Murphy’s career has struggled recently. Perhaps playing Axel Foley one more time is what he needs?
