Jerry Bruckheimer signs Paramount deal

Beverly Hills Cop 4 leads a slate of projects that producer Jerry Bruckheimer is now working on for Paramount Pictures...

Jerry Bruckheimer's time at Disney is now officially over, with the long-standing deal between the two finally ended. This follows what had largely been a successful period of time, although the financial disappointment of The Lone Ranger this year - not an outright flop, but still an underperformer - may have brought things to a head. It followed one or two other disappointments - Prince Of PersiaThe Sorceror's Apprentice - outside of the juggernaut that's been the Pirates Of The Caribbean series.

Bruckheimer is a man still in demand though, and Paramount has now brought the producer back to the studio where he got his start. The pair have inked a three year deal wthat will start with Beverly Hills Cop 4, a movie still planned for Brett Ratner to make. Eddie Murphy will return. Bruckheimer had told us back in August - right here - that he wasn't involved with that film. So either he was and he wasn't telling us, or all of this has come together quite quickly.

Another of Bruckheimer's previous films that Paramount want as a high priority is Top Gun 2, with Tom Cruise returning. Don't hold your breath for Days Of Thunder 2, mind...
