Beverly Hills Cop 4 is happening, and filming has just begun! It’s been nearly 30 years since we’ve seen Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley. He first graced our screens in a Beverly Hills Cop in 1984. Yet as you read this, we are only days away from a comeback.
In a recent interview, the iconic producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed this production began before the end of August. Beverly Hills Cop 4 will see Axel Foley in a completely different world, both in Los Angeles and Detroit and the film will be released via netflix. No confirmation if previous cast members such as Judge Reinhold will return to the team, but you have to think that the main actors of the original trilogy like Reinhold will be part of it.

However, this isn’t the first attempt at a reboot or comeback for the franchise we’ve seen in recent years. Beverly Hills Copthe series shot a pilot in 2013-2014 and even featured Eddie Murphy back in the first episode, with Brandon T Jackson taking the lead role. But before the pilot could go any further, he was jettisoned and not picked up by CBS due to Murphy not taking on a full-time role and only agreeing to appear in the pilot, which executives didn’t like.
We saw huge success last year with a throwback to an 80s classic with Top Gun: Maverick. Could Beverly Hills Cop 4 have similar success? Only time will tell. Murphy himself has had an acclaimed career comeback of late despite the box office bombshell that has been Coming 2 America. Here is the hope Beverly Hills Cop 4 is more of a comeback than a box office bomb.

Eddie Murphy has been trying to get back into the good books of Hollywood lately. He’s been in some really good movies recently. Yes, Coming 2 America didn’t do brilliantly well on Amazon Prime Video. However, it seems fans enjoyed the sequel. We also saw Murphy in Dolemite is my name which I found really good. This movie was released on Netflix and received very good reviews from critics, and it seemed like subscribers enjoyed the movie.
Eddie Murphy will also star in a new movie called you people. The film is directed by Kenya Barris, which he co-wrote with Jonah Hill. The film is a comedy and will star Jonah Hill, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lauren London, Sam Jay, Molly Gordon, Mike Epps, Nia Long, Deon Cole, Rhea Perlman and David Duchovny. It should be released on Netflix next year.
