Eddie Murphy confirms he’s planning Beverly Hills Cop 4

October 9th, 2019 by Marc Comments

25 years (25?!) have passed since the last time we saw Axel Foley – played by Eddie Murphy – in action in the disappointing Beverly Hills Cop 3 and there’s been rumours numerous times over those years of a fourth instalment.

Sadly, that never happened… until now, it seems.

Speaking to Collider, Murphy revealed that he plans to resurrect the franchise after he’s done with the sequel to Coming To America: “Yeah, that’s what we’re doing after Coming to America, we’re doing Beverly Hills Cop and then, then the plan is to get back on stage and do stand up and then kind of that’s what I’ll be doing mostly is stand up and Beverly Hills Cop.”

He went on: “I keep saying it, these movies and Saturday Night Live I’m looking at it as a book end and if I decide I just want to stay on the couch forever I ended it on a funny note and I’ll do standup if I’m feeling creative.”

“I can get up on stage and do my standup and if, you know, some incredible filmmaker comes along with some great movie or there’s a great opportunity, but I’m not going to be making movies two three a year like I did back in the early days because I like to just be home with the kids.”

With Murphy making a reportedly solid return with Dolemite is My Name, it would be great to see him riding high back into the role of Foley… even just once more.

What say you all?

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….
