'Beverly Hills Cop,' 'Naked Gun,' and 'Escape From New York': What's next?
'Beverly Hills Cop': TRUE
When: Likely 2016
Who: Eddie Murphy
But why? It would be a tough sell to re-launch the property without Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, and there was talk at CBS about a TV version featuring Brandon T. Jackson as Foley's son. That idea, like several other reboot attempts before it, fizzled out. The latest iteration being developed is, simply, "Beverly Hills Cop 4," with Murphy back under the direction of Brett Ratner ("Tower Heist").
