Murphy Signs On For New Beverly Hills Cop Movie

Murphy Signs On For New Beverly Hills Cop Movie Following the worldwide success of the latest Indiana Jones flick, it is being reported that Eddie Murphy will once again star in the movie franchise that catapulted him to stardom almost 25 years ago, Beverly Hills Cop:

The 47-year-old is set to star as crime fighting police detective Axel Foley in the fourth installment of the hit “Beverly Hills Cop,” Reuters reported.

Murphy reportedly approached Paramount Pictures about the idea and filming is expected to start next year with a summer 2010 release date, according to Reuters.

Brett Ratner, whose work includes the “Rush Hour” movies, is in negotiations to direct the film, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura of “Transformers” was tapped to produce the flick, Reuters reported.

The first “Beverly Hills Cop” debuted in 1984 and was followed up with two sequels — the last of which premiered in 1994. {Source)

Here’s hoping this movie is actually good. Despite garnering praise for his role in Dreamgirls, Eddie, no doubt, dropped the ball in the critically panned ‘Norbit’. This may just be his redeeming gig…
