Paramount pulls Eddie Murphy's Beverly Hills Cop 4 from its release schedule

05.07.2015

Beverly Hills Cop 4 Brett Ratner Eddie Murphy

Bad news this morning for those of you who were pumped to see the Brett Ratner-directed fourth installment in the BEVERLY HILLS COP franchise next year. Sources tell The Wrap that Paramount has removed BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 from its release schedule, and will no longer open on March 25, 2016 as planned. This is probably for the best since a little movie called BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is also set to open on that date, and it will give screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec more time to get the script to Eddie Murphy's liking.

Here's what Murphy had to say about the script earlier this year:

They’re still trying to get that script right. I’m not doing a Beverly Hills Cop unless they have a really incredible script. I’ve read a couple things that look like they can make some paper. But I’m not doing a shitty movie just to make some paper. The shit got to be right.

Paramount hasn't issued a new release date though, so I do wonder if a fourth film will actually happen. Do you believe BEVERLY HILLS COP 4 will get made, and if so, when do you think it might hit theaters?

Do we really want or need to see Brett Ratner direct another movie? I say no.

With pretty much every 80s franchise getting a reboot, a remake or a way past it's prime sequel... I gotta say, it's weird that Beverly Hills Cop and Gremlins seem to have the hardest time getting their new shit off the ground. And it certainly isn't for lack of trying. I mean we've gotten and soon will be getting ridiculous stuff that for years - or DECADES - seemedl like impossible dreams... everything from a fourth Indy and an all female Ghostbusters to Star Wars Episode VII and who knows

I gotta say, it's weird that Beverly Hills Cop and Gremlins seem to have the hardest time getting their new shit off the ground. And it certainly isn't for lack of trying. I mean we've gotten and soon will be getting ridiculous stuff that for years - or DECADES - seemedl like impossible dreams... everything from a fourth Indy and an all female Ghostbusters to Star Wars Episode VII and who knows what else. Hell, I remember when a third Terminator movie seemed impossible. Look at where we are now. Crazy. Big movies this summer are Jurassic World and a 4th Mad Max. A decade ago who believed they'd ever see a big budget Mad Max movie? Alien, Predator, Robocop, the list is endless... no franchise will ever die. If something made money once, they sure as hell will try to pump some more money out of that - FOREVER. And like I said, weird crasy shit I didn't think I'd ever see...

But still no Beverly Hills Cop IV. If in like, I don't know 1995, I told you there would be atleast three Terminator movies without James Cameron, a Rocky VI, four new Star Wars movies, an entire cinematic universe from Marvel that includes not one but two Avengers movies ALL before a fourth Beverly Hills Cop cash grab... you'd call me crazy. But crazy times these are indeed.

I ain't complaining. It's great that they are looking for quality in this one. And the next Gremlins. I would have imagined there to be a half dozen CGI Gremlins movies going DTV by now...

Bit of a rant, but this really got me reflecting.

I'd rather them pull it too if the script isn't right. I want a great fourth film, or don't bother.

LOL did Murphy even think before he said those words, pot calling kettle, come in kettle! Well at least we can hope it might be good, this could kick start his career again, if done well. So here is hoping.

..not doing a shitty movie to make paper.. I believe that's the funniest line spoken by Murphy in two decades.

Eddie Murphy has given up entirely.

I don't think anyone in Hollywood has ever just given up like Eddie Murphy has. He hit a new low when he was on that SNL reunion special and basically said a sentence and walked off. People were there to see him, and he didn't do anything funny, he was kind of a jerk to the cast behind the scenes and didn't even show up to rehearsals.

This guy was on top of the world, then he did the same movie 5 times using the same fat suit/green screen multiple versions of himself techniques and every

He hasn't made a decent movie since that Steve Martin movie Bowfinger, which was one of his best!

I guess the Eddie Murphy of the past 20+ years must have been Pod People Eddie Murphy?

I was getting an "Anchorman 2" vibe from this from the start. I wish Eddie could come back and start making better movies but I highly doubt this was going to be the start of that.

To assist in translation Eddie was down for making a "shitty" movie 20 years ago, hence "Beverly Hills Cop 3" in 1994 for 15 million. Flash forward to 2015 and he's no longer willing to do that as his pockets are much fatter and would rather wait for a better product...

To be fair, he may have higher standards for BHC4 over the kid friendly schtick he has done the past 20 years.
BHC is very different from what he has done as of late and from what I hear, he was fantastic in Dreamgirls. So...I see what he is saying. Don't just make BHC4 for the sake of it from the sound of it.

If you think he can come back to his former self, then you didn't see his part on the SNL reunion
