Axel Foley for kids?

Axel Foley Ever since news broke that snatch crazed fauteur Brett Ratner had signed on to resurrect Axel Foley for BEVERLY HILLS COP IV, fanboys the world over have been bashing their heads against the wall lamenting the raping of another beloved franchise and chastising Eddie Murphy for ever agreeing to be part of such a thing. And what The Rat recently told "MTV Movies Blog" really won't help with the fanboy outcry. When asked what the biggest challenge would be reviving Foley, he said: "10-year-old kids, 12-year-old kids don’t really know the old ‘Beverly Hills Cop.’ So it’s an opportunity to make it new for kids. The same way it felt for me watching ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ when I was a kid, that’s what I want to do for kids today." In all fairness to The Rat, he probably isn't saying that the film will be aimed at ten year-olds considering he used his own experience watching the original as an example but if he at some point says that the film will be PG-13, someone may actually kill him.

Extra Tidbit: Original BEVERLY HILLS COP director Martin Brest also directed GIGLI.
