Time for another action comedy with Eddie Murphy in the role of Axel Foley. Now the director is in place.
At a time when many old movie icons are returning to the roles that made them famous, Eddie Murphy is also getting ready to play the constable from California again. Team arm in LA. Yes, you know - the cop in Hollywood.
Deadline writes that "Beverly Hills Cop 4" has found its director in Mark Molloy, so far best known from the world of commercials. This will be his first feature film. Molloy thus replaces "Bad Boys For Life" duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who are probably too busy with their superhero movie "Batgirl" for HBO Max.
When the film can be recorded is not known, however, we know that it goes directly to Netflix.
The first time Eddie Murphy played the cocky cop Axel Foley was in "The Cop from Hollywood" from 1984 - the most lucrative film of the year. A sequel came out in 1987, and the third and most recent film was released in 1994.
Eddie Murphy is now 61 years old, as you probably wonder, and apparently not yet "too old for this shit".
And now: one of the best movie themes of the 80's!
