Eddie looks to be gearing up for a run as it has been shared that he is eyeing a project with Netflix and now is adding to his team for Beverly Hills Cop’s fourth installment. Last July we heard from producer Bret Ratner that the franchise will be getting a new film. Now news is out that Paramount is brining in two directors to bring the movie to life.
Paramount has set Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct its long awaited fourth installment of the Beverly Hills Cop series. The Belgian writer-directors are best known for their edgy drama Black, which won the Discovery Award at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The studio, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Eddie Murphy have been working diligently to get the script and elements right for a film that had been once been slated to be released this year. They loved Black, and when they met with the filmmakers, they were charmed to discover how important the original Beverly Hills Cop was to them. Even though this is a major step up from the budget of their last film, this became an opportunity to reframe a venerable franchise with youthful energy. They will direct a script by writers Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec that will bring Murphy’s street smart cop character Axel Foley back to his Detroit origins. It is gritty with the trademark irreverent humor that powered the first three films to north of $ 735 million in global box office. Brett Ratner is exec producer.
