Eddie Murphy Wants to Develop Beverly Hills Cop TV Series


Tower Heist star and upcoming Oscar host talked to Rolling Stone magazine about the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise and revealed that a fourth movie is not happening, but a TV series might.

“They’re not doing it,” he said about a Beverly Hills Cop IV. “What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I’d do the pilot, show up here and there.”

He explained further why another movie didn’t work out. “None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”
