Beverly Hills Cop: The Series may have found its lead

October 26th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Looks like the Beverly Hills Cop series is going ahead… and Axel Foley’s son is close to signing.

Yes, Brandon T. Jackson, star of Tropic Thunder and, em, Big Momma’s House 3 is in final negotiations to play, wait for it, Aaron Foley.

The series will follow on from the movies and will see Axel Foley – played again in occasional cameos by Eddie Murphy – as Detroit Chief of Police while his son Aaron, also a cop, tries to get out from under the shadow of his father, presumably by going to Beverly Hills. Just, you know, like his dad did. Three times.

We’re being tough on it, but really.. is anyone excited about this? We want to know…

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….
