'Beverly Hills Cop 4' on the horizon

By
The Beverly Hills Cop movie franchise will be revived according to reports, with Eddie Murphy reprising the role of detective Axel Foley for a fourth time.

Variety magazine claims that Paramount studio is in pre-production on the project and has hired Constantine producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to work with Eddie Murphy on the action-comedy.

"Axel Foley is one of the great action-comedy characters, a character that Eddie loves. I'm lucky enough to help bring it back," di Bonaventura told Variety. "This genre is missing from the landscape."

The previous instalment - Beverly Hills Cop III - was released in 1994 and disappointed at both the box office and with critics.
