There seems to be a bit of a trend in Hollywood at the moment, of people either remaking some great movies of old, or deciding to make a sequel to n old hit movie, which is having quite a mixed response with the fans and critics alike. There has been a lot of talk about a potential Beverly Hills Cop 4 movie being made and we even got a failed pilot for a television series, yet the rumours just will not go away.
Hollywood funny man Eddie Murphy was the star in all three of the Beverly Hills Cop movies and he has now given his views on a possible Beverly Hills Cop 4 film being made. Eddie says that, while he has read some scripts that could make the movie a lot of money, he will only reprise his role of Axel Foley if the script is a great one.
Murphy was asked by Rolling Stone whether production on Beverly Hills Cop 4 was close to starting, to which he replied, "Nah, they still trying to get that script right. I'm not doing a Beverly Hills Cop unless they have a really incredible script. I've read a couple things that look like they can make some paper. But I'm not doing a sh**ty movie just to make some paper. The s**t got to be right."
Beverly Hills Cop 3 was released way back in 1994 but was largely criticised by many people all over the world, including Eddie Murphy himself, he called the film "atrocious". It will be interesting to see whether the writers can come up with a good script for Beverly Hills Cop 4 and it is understandable that Eddie would want it to be a great one, after all, he has not starred in a good movie for quite some time now.
