Paramount is taking another crack at Beverly Hills Cop 4

BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 has some life to it once again.

After being pulled from Paramount's slate at the outset of last summer (the sequel was initially set up with a release date of March 25, 2016 - when BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE graced this world) due to script concerns, it appears progress is once again being made in bringing Eddie Murphy back to the big screen as Axel Foley. 

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the Belgian writer-directors behind BLACK - winner of the Toronto International Film Festival's Discovery Award last year, have been tapped to helm the long-in-development sequel after the studio, Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer were impressed by their previous film and ultimately won over by the duo's love of the series. The pair will be working off a script written by writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec that has been tweaked and recalibrated over months to try to get to a place that satisfies everyone. It is believed the fourth film of the franchise would take Foley back to his roots in Detroit. 

The plan is to head into production either by the end of the year or in early-2017. It's been over 20 years since the last time we saw Murphy wield his badge, with the much-maligned BEVERLY HILLS COP 3 landing in theaters in 1994. Hopefully the new film doesn't veer in that direction where Eddie Murphy still believes he's a Wesley Snipes-like action star. A funny Eddie Murphy is what made the first two flicks click. With any luck, that's what is waiting for everyone back in Michigan.

Rated R or don't bother. If Die Hard has taught us anything, Rated R movies should remain rated R instead of pandering to the youth.

I don't know if Paramount has noticed, but Eddie Murphy isn't funny anymore. He hasn't made a good movie in decades and that spark he once had, is apparently gone when he made that appearance on SNL.

Beverly Hills Cop 4: Getting Too Old For This Shit

It's time to stop this idiotic trend of reviving long-dead franchises that nobody cares about anymore.

You know what I'd like to see...a sequel to Coming to America, where Eddie and Arsenio reprise all the characters. The forest is the funniest movie ever made in my opinion, and I would pay money to see it done right!

Crazy idea, but why not get both Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes in the movie as, say, estranged brothers with Snipes as the straight up no-nonsense career military man and Murphy as the street smart veteran Detroit cop. Maybe the movie starts with Axel busting a criminal operation that somehow implicates his own brother, and the two must work together to clear his brother's name and beat the bad guys, while being on each other's throats.

Maybe they should replace Eddie Murphy with Leslie Jones and use all females instead

People don't want sequels or remakes to old movies with same gender characters anymore. This is 2016.

it's the middle of 2016 and there hasn't been a single sequel, prequel, or remake that's had major characters switch genders. There may be a few things like Lawrence Fishburne in bvs, but literally not one film has been released this year with characters that changed genders. That's six months into the year. I know of one film that's I guess kind of a remake coming out next month that's featuring 4 females instead of 4 males, but they aren't the same characters. Maybe they will play the

I know of one film that's I guess kind of a remake coming out next month that's featuring 4 females instead of 4 males, but they aren't the same characters. Maybe they will play the same type of character though. Ok so that's one film. And I read that they are making a female ocean's 11. So IF that gets made, it's two. So there are 2-3 films released every week, sometimes 5. Assuming female ocean's 11 gets made and is released next year, that's two films in two years. can you come up with like...at least two more examples?

if you just woulda left the snark at ppl will probably want to replace eddie murphy with leslie jones you woulda had something there man!
