There will be no Beverly Hills Cop 4… for now. Eddie Murphy will reprise his role as Axel Foley from the 1984 classic that spawned two sequels, but this time it will be for television.
According to sources, Murphy will produce the show as well as appear, but the focus will be on the exploits of Foley’s son. Murphy’s character, a wise-cracking detective in the earlier incarnations, has been promoted to the Chief of Police in Detroit. Oh, the irony. For those that are too young to know about Beverly Hills Cop, peep the video below for a refresher course.
