Producer Starts Talking About "Beverly Hills Cop 4"

Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura hasn’t gone as far as hiring a screenwriter just yet, but don’t be too surprised when he does…

Fans of the "Beverly Hills Cop" series may be pleased to learned that the producer is definitely planning on (maybe) kick-starting the franchise again. Apparently Eddie Murphy is down with the idea, although it doesn’t look like any contracts have been signed just yet.

Here’s what LDB told


"’Happening’ would be too strong a word, but we are working on a take," he told us. "We have not hired a writer yet, but we’ve been analyzing the franchise and asking lots and lots of people about Alex Foley. ‘What do you love about Axel and what would you want to see with an Axel Foley movie?’ I think we have enough information now that we’ll probably be hiring a writer in the next four to eight weeks and taking a good shot at it."

And all this time I thought "Beverly Hills Cop 3" had demolished the franchise. Huh. As an Eddie Murphy fan, I’d be a whole lot happier with this than with, say, "Norbit 2." Right?
