Are you as excited about this as I am!? News of a new installment of Beverly Hills Cop has long run rampant, with even reports of a TV show based on the character coming to fruition but (thankfully) that was put on the back burner. During an interview with Bloomberg, Jerry Bruckheimer says they are in the process of finishing the script for the forth installment of Beverly Hills Cop. Of the impending film, Bruckheimer says:
We’re in the process of getting the script finished. Paramount is very excited about making it, Eddie is very excited, Brett Ratner is excited about doing it, so I think we’re moving forward. Hopefully we’ll start end of summer, beginning of fall and get rolling on it. We’re going to take Eddie back to Detroit – he’s going to be in Beverly Hills and we take him to Detroit. So we’re going to have some fun with him, he’s really excited about doing it.”
Brett Ratner is set to be in the Director’s chair, but i’m not sure how I feel about that yet. Either way I think this one’s worth checking out. Especially knowing Murphy’s character is headed back to Detroit. Shoutout to Damon Wayans on his first random appearance in the first Beverly Hills film. Classic.
