Eddie Murphy is back for a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie.
Beverly Hills Cop 4 is finally in production. After years of developmental hell and an attempt at a CBS series without Axel Foley in the center, a fourth film is officially happening. The new film in the series is titled Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley and is coming to Netflix soon. In addition to Eddie Murphy returning as Foley, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Taylour Paige are joining the cast of the upcoming fourth film in the series. In 1984 the first film grossed more than $300 million worldwide and was nominated for an Academy Award for best original screenplay. The sequel debuted in 1987, and a third came out in 1994. Mark Molloy directs this Netflix film with a screenplay by Will Beall (Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Aquaman).
Synopsis of the 1984 original.
After his childhood buddy is murdered while visiting Detroit, rebellious cop Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) follows the leads to Beverly Hills, Calif., under the auspices of a vacation. He checks in with old friend Jenny Summers (Lisa Eilbacher) and starts to believe her boss, art dealer Victor Maitland (Steven Berkoff), might somehow be involved in the murder. However, Lt. Bogomil (Ronny Cox) of the Beverly Hills Police Department does not trust Foley and hinders his search for evidence.
