The long-in-development fourth installment, which has now been titled Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley, is being directed by Mark Molloy from a screenplay written by Will Beall.
The film is produced by Murphy, Jerry Bruckheimer, Chad Oman, and Melissa Reid, with Charisse Hewitt-Webster and Ray Angelic executive producing.
The original Beverly Hills Cop was released in 1984 and starred Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a cop from Detroit who visits Beverly Hills, California to solve the murder of his best friend. The film was a smash hit, earning more than $300 million at the box office and even earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay. The film also spawned two sequels, which were released in 1987 and 1994, but didn’t receive the praise or box office success of the original.
