Eddie Murphy is rejoining his original “Beverly Hills Police” co-stars— Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Paul Reiser, and Bronson Pinchot– for the upcoming follow-up, “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel Foley.”
Netflix picked up the rights in 2019 to launch the next “Beverly Hills Police” film
“Axel Foley” is the fourth installation in the hit action-comedy franchise, complying with 1984’s “Beverly Hills Police Officer,” 1987’s “Beverly Hills Police II,” as well as 1994’s “Beverly Hills Police III.” For the Bourque, producers opted to ditch the roman characters and rather name the film after Murphy’s fish-out-of-water character. This Detroit police officer trips to Los Angeles to check out criminal activities.
Plot information for “Beverly Hills Police Officer: Axel Foley” has been kept under cover. Probably, the story includes Axel Foley returning to the 90210 to break a brand-new situation.
In the original movie, Reinhold and Ashton played Investigator Billy Rosewood and Sergeant John Taggart, who was hired to track Axel Foley as he attempted to solve the murder of his best friend. Reiser played Investigator Jeffrey Friedman as well as Pinchot was the fan-favorite Serge. Reinhold appeared in each succeeding “Beverly Hills Cop” adventure, though Ashton, Reiser, and Pinchot returned for just two of the three.
As formerly reported, Taylour Paige (“Zola”) and also Joseph Gordon-Levitt have been cast in “Axel Foley” in unrevealed duties.
The first 3 “Beverly Hills Police” installments were box office hits, earning greater than $700 million worldwide and strengthening Murphy’s existence as a movie star. A fourth film has remained in the decades, with filmmakers Brett Ratner and the duo of Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah each affixed at one point to direct. In early 2022, Mark Molloy was tasked to helm the movie, in his feature launching, from a manuscript by Will Beall (“Aquaman”).
Murphy is creating the film with Jerry Bruckheimer and Chad Oman for Jerry Bruckheimer Movies. Charisse Hewitt-Webster and Ray Angelic will work as executive manufacturers, while Melissa Reid will co-produce for Jerry Bruckheimer Films.
