Vulture is reporting that Eddie Murphy wants to bring Beverly Hills Cop back – only this time for the small screen.
The comedy star is said to be working with The Shield creator Shawn Ryan and Sony Pictures Television on reviving our favourite Detroit cop.
Murphy would reprise his role as Axel Foley in a guest-star capacity and the focus of the series would be the character’s police officer son.
The actor told Rolling Stone magazine last year that Axel was now the chief of police in Detroit and that he would “do the pilot, show up here and there”.
Like the movies, the series would blend action and comedy.
