Beverly Hills Cop 4 happening on Netflix with Eddie Murphy returning

December 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Axel Foley is coming back!

Yes, it looks like we are finally getting Beverly Hills Cop 4 with star Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, only this time he’ll be on the small screen (does anyone still have a small screen?) as it’s being licensed by Netflix thanks to a Paramount one-time deal.

The fourth instalment of the franchise originally kicked-off in 1984 will see another long-term, well-known character return to the screen and because it’s heading to Netflix, there’s no financial risk for Paramount. Winner winner, chicken dinner.

Paramount and Netflix have so far given us Cloverfield: God Particle and Annihilation, so there’s definitely a good track record there.

Given Murphy’s success resurgence with Dolemite Is My Name, this is a smart move. Will the new movie manage to capture the politically incorrect rawness of the first two movies? That remains to be seen but given Netflix’s streaming of Dave Chappelle’s Sticks And Stones and Shaft last year, it’s a source of confidence that they aren’t afraid to cut to the bone.

What say you all? The return of Axel Foley… who’s in?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
