Brett Ratner's Beverly Hills Cop 4 starring Eddie Murphy gets a 2016 release

05.02.2014

Detective Axel Foley will be back on the beat! In just over two years that is. It was announced today that Paramount will release BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 on March 25th, 2016.

Eddie Murphy will return for the title role and we heard earlier this month that he’s heading to back to Detroit according to Jerry Bruckheimer who is producing the flick. Brett Ratner is set to direct and Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL) are writing the script.

As a huge fan of the series (well, the first two installments) I think it will be great to see Murphy return to this role.  He always seemed to have a lot of fun playing Axel Foley, even in the disappointing BEVERLY HILLS COP III sequel.  WHY did the movie take place at an amusement park!? Someone tell me what happened there, I can’t’ even. This time around, I’d like to see Axel take on the mean streets of Detroit; maybe some gangs instead of suits.  And, of course, it should to be set to an 80’s soundtrack.  Wishful thinking? 

What do you guys think? Can Murphy recapture the Axel Foley magic after being MIA for two decades?

Will you be checking out BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 on March 25th, 2016?

Extra Tidbit: David Cronenberg was asked to direct the first movie, but turned it down. Can you imagine?

Oh Dear God...NO!

If it's R-rated with Eddie's humor from the late 70's or early 80's, and if Brett R can be punted off directing duties, I'm all for it.

With the way movies are being pushed off by movie execs nowadays, I see a PG-13 BHC, with some ex boy-band member playing his "unsuspecting" son, that he didn't realize he had, blah, blah, blah!

Rated R or no go!

I remember when they thought the 3rd movie was a good idea because, wouldn't it be cool if Eddie Murphy came back to reprise his role,
Look how that turned out.
The idea is cool but some ideas should stay as such and will it really be has good as the original?
Most probably not :-(

I love BHC 1& 2 so much! But I HATE Brett Rattner and about 90% of the films he's made! He is a hack who is gonna fuck this film up!

The film would suck no matter who directs it. It's unnecessary.

This will be a good movie only if it is rated R. Just like part 1 and 2 of Beverly Hills Cop. But if it's PG 13 like Beverly Hills Cop 3, it will be bad.

I liked Brett Ratner for Red Dragon and Rush Hour. Lol and as a kid growing up, Beverly Hills Cop 3 was my favorite. It's freaking stupid now, but so much nostalgia for back then :-P

Red Dragon, seriously? Had nothing on the original. And was another pointless remake.

Yes Mr. McMorrow, we should totally have Beverly Hills Cop 4 set entirely in Detroit, and still call it Beverly Hills Cop 4.

Hollywood's shittiest director directing an actor who hasn't make a good movie in 15 years. I smell a classic.

15 years ago he was in BOWFINGER. And what about SHREK 1 & 2, TOWER HEIST and DREAMGIRLS?

That was a guesstimate. They were supporting roles. Bowfinger was horrible and he was annoying as hell in Tower Heist. Did anyone watch Shrek just for Donkey. I didn't.

@jekkie. I agree, but as a lead he hasn't done much in a long time. I hope he proves me wrong. I love the first two cop movies.
